There’s been an interesting/convoluted story floating around the internet for the last couple of weeks that has finally been addressed and brings to the fore front what might have been had Darabont never been fired from TWD. It started with a rumor regarding a supposed web series that would tell the back story of the dead soldier in the tank in episode 2 of season one into what would could have eventually become the season 2 opener. Here’s a video of Sam Witwer, the guy who played the dead soldier, discussing his part in what could have happened.
With all the rumors floating around Darabont felt it was important to address his adoring public through Quint from aintitcool.com. Here’s what he had to say regarding what could have been had he not been fired.
There’s been no shortage of promotional material for TWD season 2 and now we get a look at a very dramatic scene from the premiere. Check it out for a taste of whats in store when it hits AMC tv 10-16-2011.
If you’re a hardcore Walking Dead fan you’ll want to check these web shorts out and get caught up on all the back story and characters that make up TWD universe before the big premiere October 16, 2011.
One of the things that set TWD apart from most other low budget or tv zombie movies was their attention to detail and all the hard work that went into creating such original zombies. Here a look behind the scenes at what it takes to create the wardrobe for a herd of zombies.
The new season of TWD premieres October 16, 2011 on AMC.
While you wait with baited breath to see if season 2 is going to be a total disaster without Frank Darabont you can check out this cool poster from the upcoming season. It features what looks to be Rick Grimes running with gun in hand toward Hershel’s farm. Here’s some advice to the new show runner, stick with the comic. Everything good about last season was from the comic, it only started to suck when you went rogue. Just keep that in mind and you’ll do fine.
Check out the show when the second season premieres next month on AMC.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the first season of season one of The Walking Dead. I felt it was uneven at times, and strayed to far away from the source material towards the end of the season. With that being said it was still must see television for me because of my love for the comic it was based on. With all the turmoil on set regarding Darabont’s departure it will be very interesting seeing the direction season 2 takes and how much rope they will be given if the ratings don’t live up to the first seasons sucsess. Here are 4 teasers from AMC.tv to keep our interest up during the long wait until the October 2011 return.
And who should we thank for this major spoiler? The culprit is Frank Darabont. The producer, and sometimes director of the outstanding zombie show for AMC lets a few juicy tidbits slip out. See what he gives away…
While chatting with AMC Frank Darabont talks about what’s in store for the second season of The Walking Dead.
What follows is an excerpt from the interview:
“I don’t know if we’re giving anything away, but something as simple in the comic books as ‘Lori gets pregnant’ winds up being sort of a fantastic complication on screen. In the story we’re telling, it’s just not that simple as it was in the comic book because you have those opportunities to really spin the story out in many different layers,” said Darabont.
The showrunner for AMC’s Golden Globe and Saturn Award winning zombie apocalypse drama also revealed that he jumped in to direct an action scene involving one of the ‘new’ characters. “I jumped in and directed a sequence involving T-Dog trying to elude a zombie in a big snarl of abandoned cars on a deserted highway. It’s a bit of cat-and-mouse in all the dead traffic, and it was terrific fun to shoot.”
