A recent report on Bloody Disgusting indicates that a movie version of AMC’s hit Walking Dead series may be in the early stages of inception.
According to the horror site, the project has been discussed in a few “non-business conversations”, which likely means over an idle brunch, or at a celebrity get together.
While the creator of the Walking Dead comic book, and writer and series producer of the AMC T.V show, appeared to rule out a cinema treatment in an interview in 2010, he also indicated he was surprised it even got a TV show.
Kirkman said: “I didn’t want to do a movie for obvious reasons, and TV always seemed like a tough sell. But AMC got behind it and pushed the limits.”
Really, it wasn’t a tough sell at all. We know one thing for sure about The Walking Dead; it sells, whether that’s in a comic book on a TV screens. Is it such a leap to imagine that AMC will look to recreate their success with the TV show, but on the big screen?
Of course, if it ever does happen, we’re still in the infancy period of the project right now. It’s not unheard of for a TV show to make the jump to screen – X-files did it twice, albeit not entirely successfully – but still, if it is to happen at all, we’re talking years into the future.
The third season of The Walking Dead is currently filming, with new cast members David Morrissey and Danai Gurira joining the familiar line-up as the vile Mayor of Woodsbury and the ultimate baddass Michonne respectively.
The Walking Dead will return to FX in the UK and AMC in America in October this year. Yay!
