THE WALKING DEAD Season 3 Starts Filming Next Week

Robert Kirkman talks to MTV news about the start of filming of "The Walking Dead" season 3 and also teases a little about Michonne.



Robert Kirkman spoke with MTV News today and confirmed that "Walking Dead" begins filming its third season next week. No, that doesn't get Rick Grimes and friends in front of your eyes any faster, but it's a start.

Kirkman also talked at length about the once and future Michonne, Danai Gurira, and what she brings to the role of the show's new sword-wielding badass.

"Danai is an absolutely fantastic actress," he said. "That role is going to be absolutely grueling. It'll put her through her paces. She'll have to do a lot of sword work. I can't say a lot about what she's going to do, but everyone who has read the comic knows Michonne is a badass. We'll see a lot of that in the show as well. Danai has really been diving into that head first with lots of sword training. We begin filming next week, so we'll be working with her a lot, and we're excited to have her on board."

Just last month, Gurira herself commented on accepting the role of Michonne, which comes with no small amount of pressure.
