Q: You’ve directed episodes in all three seasons. How does this season compare to the first?
A: There’s a little bit of first season peeking through this season. In the first season it seemed like everything we were doing was new and there was a lot of discussion about who was going to live and who was going to die and what kind of tone the show was going to take. This year the same thing was introducing Woodbury. We were always asking the same questions: How self-sufficient do we make it? What are the citizens like? What kind of power does the town have?
Q: What’s the secret to directing big groups of walkers?
A: There were a lot of instances this season where the zombie action was relentless but it wasn’t spelled out in the script specifically. It would be written [that] Rick and the others… dispatch the remaining walkers, so it’s my job to figure out what I wanted. Where is Daryl stabbing people once he’s shot his bow? I’m always looking for new ways to execute the zombie action and I think we’ve done a lot of shooting in heads, so I was trying to bring something different.
Q: What are some twists have you’ve been bringing to the action?
A: Well, I really like to reveal everything — reveal the zombies’ geography and reveal the choice of how to kill the zombie — all from the hero’s point of view. So if you follow Rick when he has to deal with a zombie, you’ll see I reveal it when Rick sees it. You want it to feel like a funhouse with lots of surprises.
I have finally capped series 2 of This Life.
Entertainment Weekly has new photos of some of the cast, along with some spoilers about what to expect this fall. Lincoln teases that “Rick has stepped up,” and Glen Mazzara calls his leadership “what’s keeping [the survivors] alive.” The group suffered some major losses as season 2 ended, and they’re going to need a leader, even if they don’t agree with some of what he has to say to survive Walking Dead season 3. Considering everything coming their way, as seen in the trailer below, it seems likely there will be at least one death during their time in the prison. Will Rick’s leadership be what prevents them from losing too many more? Then there’s the question of how this will affect Rick. If he’s busy holding the group together, who’s going to be holding him together? Will that fall on Daryl as his right-hand man?

The Walking Dead could get a movie spinoff, a report has claimed.
The project has been discussed in “non-business conversations”, according to Bloody Disgusting.
Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman appeared to rule out a movie version in 2010, saying: “I didn’t want to do a movie for obvious reasons, and TV always seemed like a tough sell. But AMC got behind it and pushed the limits.”
A third season of the zombie drama is currently filming, with new cast members David Morrissey and Danai Gurira joining Andrew Lincoln, Sarah Wayne Callies and the rest of the show’s regular cast in Georgia.
Kirkman has insisted that he is “really proud” of the upcoming episodes, suggesting that they have a “new tone”.
The Walking Dead will return to FX in the UK and AMC in the US in October.
