Have you been wondering what to expect from Fear The Walking Dead? You're not alone. We've known for a while that it is a prequel set in La, beginning while Rick is in his coma, but beyond that we didn't know much at all.
Here are some highlights from the interview...
It will indeed be set during Rick's coma, but don't call it a prequel: "We are loosely covering the period of time that [The Walking Dead's] Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was in his coma in season one. We're able to watch and experience the things that he missed. It's more of a parallel story than a prequel; imagine the opening »
According to Broadway World, actor/singer Rubén Blades (Predator 2, Once Upon a Time in Mexico) has joined the cast of Fear The Walking Dead. Blades will portray the series regular role of Daniel, the dad of Mercedes Mason’s character. Earlier this month, Mason (Quarantine 2: Terminal, 666 Park Avenue) joined the series in a regular role that's yet to be detailed.
“Fear the Walking Dead,” which is set in Los Angeles and focuses on new characters and storylines, stars Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”) as Madison, Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”) as Travis, Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) as Nick and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Into the Storm) as Alicia. Also joining the cast as series regulars are Elizabeth Rodriguez (“Orange is the New Black »

Speaking with THR, Erickson discussed Fear The Walking Dead in detail, providing some insightful glimpses into the early days of the living dead uprising and giving us plenty to look forward to:
Erickson on how the companion series compares time-wise with the first episode of The Walking Dead:
"The goal was to loosely track the period of those four or five weeks that Rick Grimes was in his coma. I wouldn't say that we end the season at the exact same point where Rick wakes up, but it'll loosely be in that time frame. Things will have gone very bad by the end of season one."
On how Kirkman doesn't want to divulge what caused the zombie apocalypse, preferring instead to explore its »

We know the cast, we know it has a six-episode first season run, and we know that events within the series take place early in the outbreak. Beyond that though, details on AMC's upcoming spin-off series "Fear the Walking Dead" are decidedly sparse.
Dave Erickson, the show runner for the new series, has now given a lengthy interview to The Live Feed where he's revealed more details about the new show, the possibility of crossovers with "The Walking Dead," and the ultimate plans for the series.
Calling the show a "parallel story [rather] than a prequel," the first season will essentially take place during the month-long period where Rick Grimes was in a coma and does "tie very specifically into the pilot of the original." It also means that people in this world aren't used to 'walkers' yet or resigned to the hopeless survivalist life that Rick and his people have long adjusted to. »

Denis Villeneuve has started to come to prominence somewhat more in the past few years with unique hits such as Prisoners and Enemy. Next up, with an all-star cast, is Sicaro which sets itself up in the lawless border area stretching between the U.S. and Mexico, where an idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is enlisted by an elite government task force official (Josh Brolin) to aid in the escalating war against drugs. That’s not all though, it’s all led by enigmatic consultant (Benicio Del Toro), who has a questionable past…
Tough stuff coming up, we’d rationally assume.
Today we’ve got a look inside Sicaro, which means ‘hitman’ in Mexican, written by first-time feature scribe Taylor Sheridan who you may recognise as an actor in Sons of Anarchy...multi-tasking impressiveness.
Here’s those images for the film that premieres at Cannes on Tuesday:
