If you catch a season two episode of AMC’s most recent sensation, the zombie-fied television show The Walking Dead, and notice that the episode’s plot revolves around a writer who lives in Maine and must do battle with an ancient, otherworldly evil with assistance from a plucky local gal and a young boy who happens to have psychic powers of some sort while discovering that the true evil lies within the heart of man (and maybe in a really big dark tower), that may be because it was written by Stephen King.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that the horror writer is in talks to pen a season two episode of the series, which was created by Frank Darabount, who has adapted King’s The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile, and The Mist for the big screen.

“Stephen King is in talks to write a season two episode of AMC’s Walking Dead, actress Laurie Holden said at a panel event at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo this weekend, according to multiple reports.

“Holden, who plays Andrea on the show, didn’t provide further details.”

And maybe a clown will show up and spook the living hell out of me.  (Goddamn you, Tim Curry, goddamn you).

What do you think of a King-penned Walking Dead?
