Rick Grimes’s story isn’t over.
Attendees at Friday’s panel for The Walking Dead at San Diego Comic-Con got a bit of a surprise as moderator and Talking Dead host Chris Hardwick shared the very first look at the upcoming untitled The Walking Dead movie from AMC Studios, Skybound and Universal Pictures.
In Andrew Lincoln’s final appearance on the hit series The Walking Dead, the character of Rick Grimes is mortally wounded and last seen being flown away by helicopter to an unknown destination. Soon, fans will discover where Rick was taken and what he faces in a new corner of the apocalypse — only on the silver screen.
“We believe this is a world and narrative with many possibilities and opportunities for character development and we’re excited to expand the series into a franchise that can live across multiple formats,” David Madden, president of original programming for AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios said when the film was first announced. “For many years, fans have talked about things in the apocalypse they want to see and now we have an opportunity to explore those stories, beginning with the character who started it all, Rick Grimes.”
The film will be the first in a series of AMC Studios Original Films, starring Andrew Lincoln and written by Scott M. Gimple, Chief Content Officer for The Walking Dead Universe.
