Filmmakers involved in the movie I Am Going to Kill Someone This Friday just keep getting good news. After sold-out showings in Jacksonville, the filmmakers strategized for a world tour. New dates are being added for screenings in other states. Amid the excitement for director Durden Godfrey and others involved, good news emerged related to the hit series The Walking Dead.
Jared Rush of Third Man Entertainment shared a tidbit with me by phone on Wednesday. We were talking about another of his projects when he dropped some news about Jay Woodley, the FX (special effects) artist on ‘Kill.’ In Jared’s own words:
“On the Last day of Principle Photography for I Am Going To Kill Someone This Friday our FX Artist, my client Jay Woodley, received a call that he will be a background actor on The Walking Dead and after 2 years of being on set and his scenes being cut, he was recently seen in the opening scene for Season 9 Episode 9.”
Meanwhile, four more states have been added to the list of film showings for ‘Kill’:
