According To Scott Gimple A ‘Walking Dead’ Film Is On The Horizon

‘The Walking Dead’ on AMC is in its seventh season and there is enough comic book material available to take the series to season ten and beyond. It appears that a film version of Robert Kirkman’s zombie epic is a possibility and the conversation is in the early stages.

‘Walking Dead’ producer Scott M. Gimple spoke on the subject of a potential film and even joked about the casting.

“That question comes up every now and again,” Gimple said to comicbook. “I’m sure one way or another, one day, it’ll happen. I think it would be cool.”

“William Shatner as Rick. We’ll get Edward James Olmos as Daryl. Hit all the big shows! Matthew Fox as the Governor!” said Gimple.

It will be a long-shot if a film gets made in the next 15 years, but you could envision AMC producing a film to close out the series.

If Hollywood did reboot the series on the big screen, who would you cast as Rick? Comment below.

You can find ‘The Walking Dead’ Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
