You know when you go see a movie based on a novel and you walk out of the theatre wondering how the hell the director managed to screw it up so badly? Well that is not what happens with Frank Darabont, director of three of the best Stephen King film adaptations ever made – The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist. Frank Darabont also wrote the screenplays for those films, proving to true Stephen King fans that he just gets it. He has also written the the screenplays for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, The Blob, The Fly II, and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. These days, you can enjoy more of his writing in the new television series he helped create, The Walking Dead.
