    The Walking Dead Movie to Go in 'Wild New Directions'

    It has been more than a year since Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes left The Walking Dead TV series and franchise chief content officer Scott M. Gimple announced that the actor and character would be appearing in a trilogy of TWD films. But other than a cryptic teaser at San Diego’s Comic-Con in July 2019 that announced the first such film would be appearing “only in theaters,” news has been scarce on the project.


    EW sat down for a wide-ranging discussion with Gimple on the state of The Walking Dead franchise, and in part one of our chat, we asked where they are with the film script, if a director has been chosen, where exactly people will be able to see it, and what we will see on screen. (Stay tuned all week for Gimple’s updates on The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead: World Beyond, and other upcoming TWD content.)loaded with happiness, love and exciting opportunities.

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It has been more than a year since you announced you would be making a Rick Grimes Walking Dead movie. Do you have a timeframe in place in terms of shoot dates and locations already locked, or at least close to locked?
    SCOTT M. GIMPLE: We have a couple of different plans that we’re going with depending on a couple of different factors we have to deal with on everything from story to product aspects. There have been a lot of different aspects to it in terms of timing that are pretty much coming into rapid focus right now. I would say the past year in a lot of ways has been R&D on a lot of aspects of it.


    In that little teaser you showed at Comic-Con in July, it said, “Only in theaters.” What does that mean? Is there anything you can tell me about the theatrical window because obviously it’s AMC, but you’ve got Universal and Skybound so there are all these entities involved.
    This is a movie that’s going to be watched in the movie theater. Eventually you won’t need a movie theater to see it, but more in line with how movies work.


    So this is not a situation where it screens in theaters, but then airs a few days later on AMC?
    No, this is a theatrical film. Yes, there’s AMC, there’s Universal, there’s Skybound. There are a lot of parties working together to cook up something special.


    What can you say narratively about Rick? We saw him going off in the helicopter. What can you say about where the story’s going to go?
    We are going to continue to tell Rick’s story, and we are going to discover so much of the world through that story. Rick will be challenged in different ways that, in some ways, everything that he’s been through has sort of prepared him for. It’s a much larger world than one that he had been operating in, and that was challenging in and of itself. Now things are heightened, and just as we’re going to the movies — and it is the movies proper, suitably wide screen — we’re going to be filling that screen with a brand new world.

    Evasive responses full of hype, it really doesn't sound as if they have much done/firmed up.
    Are they only doing one in the theater, and maybe the others as PPV specials or full length feature films on tv? That part about eventually not needing the theater to see it was strange since he clearly said in the theaters right before it.

    Typical Gimple bullshit. He didn’t say one thing we didn’t already know long ago.
