"The Walking Dead" is about to get funny. According to Coming Soon, a spoof based on the über popular AMC series is currently being filmed in San Antonio, Texas.

"Walking with the Dead" is based on an original script by Tim Ogletree ("Supernatural Activity") and directed by Scott Dow. Actors already cast include; Jacqui Holland, Dave Sheridan, Joey Oglesby, Sophia Ali and Ogletree.

The film's description sounds like "Zombieland" and "The Walking Dead" had a wacky baby:

A month into the zombie apocalypse, a group of survivors, including four who "for safety reasons" go by the names of their favorite cities--Green Bay, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Harlem--a Sheriff fresh off a nice, relaxing, six-week coma, his small-business-owner 10 year old son, and a voiceover-prone zombie, Romeo, who has convinced the group that he's not dead, just a little slow, are forced from the safety of their mall-camp in hopes of finding a rumored safe-haven.

We'll keep you posted on any new developments and when you could shamble into theaters to take a look.
