There’s some good news for all ‘The Walking Dead’ fans. All the fans will be treated with the ex-character of Rick Grimes in the upcoming ‘The Walking Dead’ movies.
The first ‘Walking Dead’ film is expected to begin production in 2019.
English actor Andrew Lincoln who used to be seen as Rick Grimes in ‘The Walking Dead’ movie, will reprise his role across three television movies on AMC, as per the report.
Chief content officer of ‘The Walking Dead’ series, Scott Gimple announced the same yesterday.
“This is not a trick. This is the end of Rick Grimes on The Walking Dead. This is not going to be the end of Rick Grimes’ story,” Gimple said after Grimes’ last episode on a live after-show.
“We’re going to continue telling Rick Grimes’ story in a series of AMC original films. There’s a lot of story to tell,” added Scott.
Gimple added that the upcoming Lincoln-led films will be a spin-off of the series and will “show a different corner of the world” where a bloodied Rick Grimes was ultimately rescued by Anne.
“It’s going to show a different situation that Rick is involved in. These are going to be shown on AMC, but they are going to have the scope of featured films,” Gimple explained.
“We have a lot on the horizon – starting with a new epic featuring one of the greatest leading actors in television history and one of the best people I’ve ever met,” Gimple says in the statement.
“These films are going to be big evolutions of what we’ve been doing on the show, with the scope and scale of features. We’re starting with the first part of the continuing story of Rick Grimes, and there is much more on the way, featuring yet-unseen worlds of The Walking Dead and faces from the show’s past, as well as new characters we hope to become favorites, told by TWD veterans and emerging voices. We want to break new ground with different, distinct stories, all part of the same world that’s captured our imagination for nearly a decade of the Dead“ added Gimple
