I flera år nu har Walking Dead fans diskuterat och undrat över hur AMC kommer hantera Negan’s färgsprakande språk i TV. Detta om hans f word kommer bli censuerade eller inte? Kommer ordet ersättas? Och hur blir det med alla s word, h word eller c word- kommer dom också censueras?
Men hur blir det då nu- ser det ut som om Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Negan kommer få kriga loss med orden? Nästan vartenda ord som kommer ut från Negans mun är ett svärord och just detta är själva frontlinjen av vem Negan är.
I en intervju svarar Morgan på frågan om Negans svärord och hur nära dom kommer att vara den tecknade seriens Negan med TV-versionen av Negan. Det går inte komma ifrån att här är ett problem. Han svarade:
“Look, it’s a speed bump. I’m not going to say it’s an issue because they’re working on it. We’re going to push AMC — the plan is to push them as far as they can because it’s who Negan is. He uses some colorful language. And I use some colorful language. And reading the comic, it’s important. So we’ll see where that lands. It’s our intention that this character is going to leap off the pages of the comic book. It’s very important that that’s who it is. Some of the characters there’s much more leeway, but Negan is a guy that you want to keep as true as possible, and that would be how I want to play him as well.”
När Rick Grimes låstes in i Termius tåget sade han:
“They’re screwing with the wrong people.”
Sedan kom Blu-ray ut och då var det den tecknade versionen inkluderad med ordet “f—ing” som sattes in istället för “screwing.”
Denna artikel frågade tre topp namn inom The Walking Dead hur dom ska hantera Negans svärord i TV-serien och detta är vad dom sa:
Comic creator, exec producer
“I would say that there are certain words that try as I might, we are not allowed to say on AMC, and those are certain words that Negan likes to say. So those words are going to be filmed, and people are going to be able to get those words, but there are definitely some broadcast limitations that we’re going to have to deal with. We’re sorting that out now, but I will say that, worst-case scenario, the extras will be extra-special on Blu-ray. I mean, we’re trying to explore some other more interesting options, but that’s the bare minimum of what we’ll be doing.”
Scott M. Gimple
Showrunner, exec producer
“I’m still finishing up season 6, so there are still aspects of these questions that I’m figuring out. But I will say that my goal is for, at the very least, in some way — might not be all the time, and it might not even be directly through your TV box — that people will be able to get full-octane Negan. I’m still playing around with it, but I will say I do have the material two ways right now. I’ll see what I can do with it. One way or another I want people to see full-octane Negan. Will I be able to shoot every scene like that? Probably not, but to tell you the truth, I think we will get as close to the version of full-octane Negan as we can through some version of the show or another.”
Director, exec producer
[On if he shot Negan’s entrance in the season finale two ways] “That would be a very good guess. We’ve talked about that. Even back when Michael Cudlitz was cast as Abraham we were like, ‘Damn, how are we going to deal with Abraham’s dialogue?’ And I think Gimple went, ‘Yeah, Abraham’s dialogue is fine. It’s Negan that we’re going to have problems with because every other word of Negan’s is f—.’ There is a rhythm to it that even in some of the takes that we did. What I affectionately call the ‘f— takes’ have a completely different rhythm to them and a completely different feel. So while editing it, I was very careful to make sure that I preserved a lot of the performance without getting myself into trouble with the profanity.”
