Frank Darabont talks Walking Dead (TV) and reveals his influences, a bit about how he’s shaping and altering the narrative and more. Also, word is Comic Con audience loved the Walking Dead trailer they saw. Lucky bastards. (HitFix)
There’s also a handful of minor Walking Dead (TV) casting announcements. (FEARnet)
And more Walking Dead (TV) news! Season two is a go (already!) with hopes of seeing George Romero (!!!) direct an episode, the composer is Bear McCreary (of Battlestar Galactica) and Walking Dead (comic) artist Charlie Adlard cameos as a zombie. Oh, and a detailed description of the trailer footage. (Dread Central)
And someone shot footage of the trailer, naturally. It’s the worst possible angle, you can barely see WTF is going on and it’s more annoying than awesome, but hey: it exists. At least until the powers-that-be pull it down. You can find it embedded below until then. (Zombie Command)
Also, if you enjoy pictures of people you can sort of recognize sitting behind a table, there are some Walking Dead (TV) cast and crew pictures from the Comic Con panel. (FEARnet)
Or, better yet, a couple of new Walking Dead (TV) production stills! (Dread Central)
And if you liked the Walking Dead poster I mentioned yesterday, here’s some info on how to buy it. (Buy Zombie)
There’s an odd new commercial for Dead Rising: Case Zero embedded below for you. No zombies … just Vegas. Like I said, odd. (Buy Zombie)
Captain Jack Sparrow announced at Comic Con that there are zombies in the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Cool. (Ain’t It Cool News)
San Diego, if you aren’t too busy with Comic Con events, tomorrow you can kill zombies in an interactive videogame art show called The San Diego Undead Show.
