HCFF: Robert Kirkman talks “The Walking Dead” showrunner shift and Zack Snyder directing an episode


Posted by on

That being said, Kirkman promised that the development of the series won’t affect the way he writes the comic book.

“I have a really hard and fast rule to try to make sure that the comic doesn’t change because of the show, because I feel like the comic’s existed for a long time before the show and I would be doing a disservice to myself if I changed the way I did anything,” he said.

If you’re all caught up on this season of “The Walking Dead” or you’ve read the graphic novel, you know Kirkman is not afraid to kill some of his main characters. But he made it clear that he was definitely affected by writing those deaths.

“A lot of people think that I’m like, ‘Aww yeah, this is awesome, let’s kill some more babies!’ There are a lot of babies that die in the comic. We haven’t gotten a lot of baby death on the show yet, but it’s coming,” he promised. “Every now and then I’m writing a scene and I tear up because I’m killing someone I’ve been writing for like 30 issues and something bad’s happening. Oh, I cry a lot, to be honest with you. Anything can make me cry.”

As Snyder is no stranger to zombie films and obviously has a good rapport with Kirkman, one fan asked if he would ever be interested in shooting an episode of “The Walking Dead.”

“Would you?” Kirkman also asked him with intensity.

Snyder laughed it off, saying, “I don’t have time, I don’t think, but if I ever did…” The audience started booing, and he added, “By the way, I’m not going to say I wouldn’t.” He continued, “I’m a big fan of the show and we watch it religiously and we watched it all through when we were shooting [‘Man of Steel’].”

Kirkman seemed totally into the idea, and tried to convince Snyder to come on board. Unfortunately we don’t think it worked.

“We would pay you like… a fair rate,” Kirkman said while the audience laughed. “And you would probably get about eight days to shoot an episode.”

“What? Eight whole days?” Snyder said with a laugh. “Normally I do one shot in eight days, but it would be cool to try to do one hour of programming.”

He added, “I didn’t say no.” It wasn’t a yes either, but we can dream.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
