Edgar Wright Offered Walking Dead Episode

Edgar Wright, director of Shaun of the Dead, has revealed that Frank Darabont asked him to direct an episode of hit US zombie-fest The Walking Dead.

“Frank asked me to do a Walking Dead, actually,â€? he said speaking to Collider. But I feel that there’s some subject matter that, like, even though it’d be great and I love that show: I actually watched four of the six episodes uninterrupted in one run; it was like zombie Pringles – I think that with something like that, with some TV shows, you wanna be in on the ground floor.â€?

When pressed into saying whether he said yes or not, Wright answered, “Well, I really enjoyed the first season, and I wouldn’t wanna be the guy that comes in and fucks it up.â€?

We’re guessing that’s a ‘no’, then.
