San Diego Comic-Con 2012: The Walking Dead Cast & Crew Interviews; Watch the Season 3 Trailer

“The Walking Dead” hit Comic-Con in full force on Friday the 13th, and while everyone was as tight-lipped as ever about the upcoming season, we came away with enough tidbits of info to ensure that we’ll be planted firmly in front of our TVs when Season 3 debuts on October 14th.

We were able to chat with all the major players – showrunner Glen Mazzara; executive producer Gale Anne Hurd; co-executive producer/special makeup effects artist Greg Nicotero; comics creator Robert Kirkman; returning stars Andrew Lincoln, Lauren Cohan, Stephen Yeun, Norman Reedus, and Laurie Holden; and newcomers Danai Gurira and David Morrissey.

Mazzara was asked what he’s most excited about in Season 3, and he answered, “The whole thing, promising they have a “great, tight story to tell.” Of course the return of Michael Rooker’s Merle was brought up and whether or not having him back might in any way diminish the intensity of Morrissey’s Governor, but Mazzara assured us there’s no comparison really between the two men. Reedus added, “Merle is a powerful, strong character, while Mazzara elaborated that all of the show’s characters are “well defined and strong.

While we had Reedus at our table, the new Merle/Daryl prequel video game from Activision was brought up, but he hasn’t started working on it yet and couldn’t shed any new light on the storyline.

Andrew Lincoln shared a bit about Rick’s evolution: “This season is a radical change… he has realized he is moving toward Shane’s uncompromising, brutal decision-making.” As a result of the events that ended Season 2, Carl and Rick will have a massive readjustment in their relationship and within the group as a whole. Carl is “more of a solider than a son.

After so many years creating zombies, we wondered how Nicotero is keeping things fresh on “The Walking Dead”, and luckily in Season 3 he doesn’t have to work too hard at it since in the prison setting there are plenty of spooky corridors to keep viewers on edge. He called it a real “House of Horrors.

As for everyone’s favorite couple – Glenn and Maggie (Yeun and Cohan) – as much as Maggie may have wanted Glenn to stay closer to home during Season 2, we can now look forward to them joining forces and going on runs together. And she won’t be clashing with the other women in the group either; they are more of a family than anything else.

Kirkman told us that this season will once again be split into two parts of eight episodes each with about the same amount of time between the two halves as we had to endure in Season 2. But the good news is he’s writing at least two of the upcoming season’s episodes: the mid-season finale (which everyone agreed is going to blow us away) and an episode in the back half.

At last we got a turn with Holden, Gurira, and Morrissey. The two women discussed the genuine love and mutual respect that grows between their two characters. Dale was a father figure for her and Shane a mentor, but after Amy died, Andrea really didn’t have anyone to turn to, but now, with Michonne, she has a true friend.

Morrissey was asked how closely the Governor of the TV series mirrors the Governor of the comics, and he said that while they do differ a bit, his portrayal is definitely “in the spirit of” the comics. And no, he hasn’t read them all, but he did read Kirkman’s Rise of the Governor, which gave him a perfect feel for the character.

And now, here’s what we know you’ve been waiting for – the full official “Comic-Con” trailer for Season 3:

Joel David Moore to Write and Direct the Remake of Hit Korean Film Hide and Seek

Published

on

Joel David Moore is an actor we all know from his roles in James Cameron’s Avatar and Adam Green’s original Hatchet film. But did you know he also co-directed Adam Green’s psychological thriller Spiral? Well, he did and now the man is stepping back behind the camera for CJ Entertainment’s upcoming remake of the 2013 Korean Movie Hide and Seek.

Moore will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing the film. The original Korean version was written and directed by Huh Jung.

“Hide and Seek is a sharp, sophisticated thriller that created a lasting imprint on me,” said Joel David Moore. “I wanted to explore what could happen if we retold this story to an American audience, using the tools from the original story. We found a rich and complex world, relevant to our current race, class and power struggles we’re seeing here in America. I’m excited to partner with CJ Entertainment, perfect partners on this journey.”

CJ Entertainment is developing, financing and producing the film.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

Based on a phenomenon that actually happens, the film centers on a man searching for his long-lost brother stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

Hide and Seek is a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class. As the population in urban areas balloon and real estate prices skyrocket, lower-income segments of society are finding themselves continually getting pushed out. This film explores the question of “what if” when those left marginalized decide to take matters, and homes, into their own hands.
