Andrew Lincoln to carry Rick Grimes to the movies
Despite all of the press surrounding the potential demise of Rick Grimes from AMC’s The Walking Dead, it looks like he will live to see another day after all in the movies. Thanks to a new deal revealed by AMC, we will see the continuation of Rick’s story in a series of AMC original films penned by Scott M. Gimple.
Andrew Lincoln discussed more on the Talking Dead after the episode aired on Sunday. He explained to Talking Dead Host, Yvette Nicole Brown, that this definitely was not going to be the last we saw of Grimes:
“It’s not the beginning of the end, it’s the end of the beginning. And I like the idea that we get to tell a bigger story, maybe with a sort of wider vista. “And I’ve always been interested in what’s going on out there, you know, whether or not there is contact with the wider world. I want to know the meta of it all. And I suppose to be able to kind of touch upon that in a contained story for me is a very exciting proposition … Maybe it’s the start of a bigger story.”

The Walking Dead films will start production sometime in 2019.
Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead has won the hearts of millions for over the past eight years. It has been considered the number one drama on television for the past six seasons. Even though this is the final season, it is good that this is not the end for our favorite hero.
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.
