During a recent set visit, Bloody Disgusting laid witness to some of the most disturbing, blood drenched carnage that they've ever seen created for a TV show. That show? AMC's upcoming (this October) - The Walking Dead.
Based on a comic from mastermind Robert Kirkman, despite not being able to drop F bombs as we've known for quite some time, the show isn't limited in it's violence factor.
Comic series creator Kirkman can't believe it either, "The stuff that AMC is going to put on air is crazy," he says. "They keep showing me things and I’m like, you’re not doing that. They rip a horse open and there’s just spaghetti coming out," says Kirkman. "They actually have things that you see."
The show which is being shot on Super 16 mm is going for a gritty look and in one of the scenes at the hospital, more gore is ever present. Bloody Disgusting described the shot of a dead nurse in horrific detail, "Her body is totally massacred, blood streaked and splattered all around her, a dark pool around her corpse. Some of her ribs are exposed and all that remains of one leg is a bloody stump."
The role of Morgan was also revealed in the set visit. The part will be played by Lennie James (TV's Jericho,and Human Target). His son Duane was already cast and other actors were rumored but Bloody Disgusting revealed that Duane's father is none other than this guy.
