The "Walking Dead" fans may have something big to look forward to on the big screen. Executive producer Scott Gimple revealed that a movie version is going to happen...one day.
The showrunner admitted via ComicBook that making a movie out of the biggest show on cable today is definitely a possibility. "That question comes up every now and again," Gimple mused. "I'm sure one way or another, one day, it will happen. I think it would be cool."
Gimple also reveals that the movie will most likely divert from the storyline of the television series. He also cracks a joke (or not) regarding his starring cast. "William Shatner as Rick. We'll get Edward James Olmos as Daryl. Matthew Fox as the Governor! Hit all the big shows!"
If ever a movie will indeed be in the works for "The Walking Dead," fans would have to wait for some time before they could troop to theaters to see it. Despite the current season's low ratings (as compared to the first six seasons), averaging 11.1 million viewers weekly is still enough to keep it around for a few more years. In fact, the eighth is already set in stone for 2017, as reported by Jobs & Hire.
Aside from this, Robert Kirkman - the brains and talent who created the "The Walking Dead" comic - won't reveal to AMC's producers how the hit horror series is going to end. Kirkman reveals he already has an ending in mind and is just taking baby steps towards it.
Even when the comic book artist divulges the ending, Gimple claims he doesn't want to know about it. Slashfilm reports that there is absolutely zero communication between Kirkman and Gimple regarding the conclusion of the "The Walking Dead." The executive producer reveals that he prefers to he enjoy the comic as just that - a reader - and does not want any spoilers.
