[TV] The Walking Dead

Postby BenJy! on Fri Jun 18, 2010 5:06 pm

Just getting around to post this so expect a pretty long post:

After all of the anticipation and all of the buzz, director Frank Darabont is officially on set filming the first of six episodes of The Walking Dead, the AMC TV adaptation of the incredible Robert Kirkman zombie comic series from Image. After a decade of unique and different zombie films - spawned by 28 Days Later - one of the first questions we all want to know is: will these zombies walk or run? Darabont is looking to George A. Romero's groundbreaking 1968 film Night of the Living Dead for inspiration. Read about it below.

In an interview with AMC, director Frank Darabont explains how he'll be deciding if the zombies in "The Walking Dead" will walk, run, or even jog.

"I've always wanted to do my take on the zombie mythos, since I was a kid and I saw Romero's Night of the Living Dead - the 1968 black and white version," he tells AMC. "For our zombie show I'm calling that the Book of Genesis, and whenever there's a question about zombie behavior I go back to Night of the Living Dead."

He continues, "Here's my favorite thing: the endless debate among the fans about how fast a zombie can move. There are the folks who just can't stand seeing zombies running. I'm kind of in that camp, but if you look at the very first zombie in Night - the one in the cemetery chasing Barbara, he gets up to a pretty good jog. I'm keying our zombie behavior off of that film: Whether they're in a very languid state or they're on the attack, they'll move no faster than that first zombie in Night of the Living Dead."

"The Walking Dead" is set among a group of zombie survivors of an apocalypse who are led by a police officer, Rick Grimes, in search of a safe place to live. Jon Bernthal, Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, and Steven Yeun all star.

AMC will premiere it this October.


and now for some pictures!

What does it take to transform human beings into members of the walking dead? Some serious training, according to Executive Producer Gale Anne Hurd. Learn how to act like a zombie (and check out some footage of our roamers-in-training) as Hurd, Writer/Director Frank Darabont, Special Make-Up FX Artist Greg Nicotero and Zombie Choreographer Matt Kent walk you through "Zombie School" in AMC's first The Walking Dead webisode.


I shall post more news as it comes, enjoy!

I only made it to issue 5 of the graphic comic novel collections, I think I was waiting for 6 to be released and kinda forgot about it after a while.

It's an interesting story, much more heavily based upon characters than zombie action through and through. I'll give the tv show a watch for sure.

First ep came out a couple of days ago btw, just about to watch it myself :)

//Finished first ep, well worth watching.
"The rover batteries have 18kwh of juice. The oxygenator alone uses 44.1kwh per sol. See my problem?
You know what? "Kilowatt-hours per sol" is a pain in the ass to say. I'm gonna invent a new scientific unit name.
One kilowatt-hour per sol is... it can be anything.. um...I suck at this ... oh FK it. I'll call it a "pirate-ninja".
All told, the Big Three need 69.9pn, most of that going to the Oxygenator and Atmospheric regulator."

It was an alright episode, but the second half crawled.

I could tell straight away though with the wide shots that the budget isn't as good as the first season's.
