Director Frank Darabont and producer Gale Anne Hurd in an interview with the resource Collider talked about their TV series "Walking Dead", which was awarded Best Television Presentation at the annual festival of Saturn Awards.
- About, how to kill zombies in the second season.
Darabont: I declare to you right now: in the second episode you will see a unique scene, which previously was not shown. If you find an analogue, Iâ€™ll jump off a cliff. This scene is also unique as one in which a zombie chopped to pieces in the second episode of first season.
- About blood.
Darabont: There is no too big ax. It is the philosophy of the show, which I grasped for myself. Too big axes do not happen!
- About the rumors that suggest that freelancers write the script for the show.
Hurd: Do not believe everything you read.
Darabont: The most sensational headline last year was this one: "Darabont dismiss all of the writers!" It looked like I came to have committed mass murder of 12 people and threw their bodies in a landfill. In fact, I'm not invited to the second season of the two writers who worked with us last year for reasons that are not make sense to go. We formed a really good and strong team this year, and work in full swing in all. The only condition that I submit to the guys (the guys and a girl) is that I inspire them to move away from traditional television scripts, and create something unique. And they really take this challenge.
- About information on when the fans finally will be able to see Michon again.
Darabont: Officially, I tell you, Michon will appear in the third season.
Heard: If the third season will be. So it is better to see a second season.
- About favorite heroes.
Darabont: I knew it.
Heard: Because people do not expect that she will be such a great war.
Darabont: Oh, God. I love them all, and truly care about each of them, and hate when we have to kill someone. I feel at this lousy.
- About the future of Darabont as the director of horror films.
Darabont: Oh, yes! I would like. I'm not planning anything special, someone spends his life in search of good material, in the hope that this will be found. He then spends the second half of life to ensure that anyone interested in what he found.
- About the murder of seven-year-girl in the first scene of the first episode.
Hurd: We are killing the girl-zombie.
- In the very first scene.
Darabont: The whole message of the show is demonstrated in this scene. When I say "message" I mean that this is a cool scene, we would like to invite you to the reality.
We deliberately did not plan to start a teaser from that, it just came out with cutting. I then told Gail, "Wow, look, we kill the seven-year-girl in the first scene." But this is the premise of the show, is not it? These shots really set the tone and chained audience's attention, and if you do not respect such things, better switch on another channel.
