In the words of TikTok, hit the accelerator! The walking dead Norman Reedus star shoots Russ Meyer’s sexploitation classic Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill! in a TV show. I don’t know how to turn “busty girls threaten standards with knives” into an entire TV season, but that’s AMC Studio’s problem, not mine. The project has full Meyer Estate approval, according to Deadline.
L’original Faster pussy Flopped on initial release, but has become a cult classic and favorite of people like John Waters and Dana Gould. The film stars Tura Satana as the leader of a group of dancing hot rodders, who lead and murder their way through Death Valley. They kill a guy, kidnap his girlfriend, and usually defy gender norms in serious but compelling ways. It’s the power of girls over amphetamines.
“I’ve been watching Russ Meyer’s movie since I was a kid, wearing my Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill! shirt in school, ”said Reedus Deadline. “It’s safe to say I’m more than inspired by Russ’s directing style.”
In the meantime, Reedus is still attached to a Walking Dead spin-off with Carol and Daryl. The show’s final season kicks off August 22.
