It’s been a while since we last heard about AMC’s plans for The Walking Dead movies starring Rick Grimes, announced at the latest pre-pandemic Comic-Con.
As we know, the films will focus on the figure of Rick, the protagonist of the original show played by Andrew Lincloln who, in the middle of the ninth season, was targeted by a mysterious organization.
Now, as we are in the pipeline with the eleventh and final season of the flagship series, and all roads are leading to movies, fans are wondering what happened to all of these projects.
Greg Nicotero and Robert Kirkman return to talk about The Walking Dead movies
An answer came on the occasion of SDCC 2021, during a panel for the third season of Creepshow, in which the executive producer, director and head of special effects of The Walking Dead, Greg Nicotero, gave a brief update on the first film of the trilogy. , explaining that the movies “They are still alive”.
“I wish I knew, and I wish I could say (when it will happen)” Nicotero said. “Over the past few months, I’ve been reading a number of drafts of the scripts. They are really making sure they do it right. ”
To add meat to the fire, however, was Robert Kirkman, the creator of the franchise, who, during his panel at Comic-Con @ Home, said that “It will be worth the wait”.
“I wish there were more updates. There is a lot to do behind the scenes. It’s entirely possible that there are some details coming up around Comic-Con that I don’t know if we can talk about yet, so I’m a good guy and I’m not going to ruin anything, but I’ll say exciting things are happening behind the scenes. and I’m just as frustrated as you guys if we weren’t able to reveal everything and talk about the project nonstop.
“We are not going to rush this thing, and we will make sure it is perfect. So that’s what’s going on behind the scenes. And when it finally comes out, when we show trailers and things like that, you’ll see. You will say: ‘That’s exactly what we wanted. I’m so glad they waited. ‘”
And it’s all very interesting but… we would still like a trailer with Andrew Lincoln as the protagonist or, at least, a launch window, because the franchise has been stinking dead for some time.
