SDCC 2019: AMC’s zombies are coming to the big screen courtesy of Universal
AMC stunned everyone on Friday, showing a brief teaser for the upcoming “Walking Dead” film, which ended with the words “only in theaters.”
AMC is partnering with Universal to distribute the film. Initially, the plan was for the films to air on AMC. There is no release date set.
The upcoming film stars Andrew Lincoln reprising his role at Rick Grimes. Lincoln departed the series during the eighth season, with then-showrunner Scott Gimple (who is now in charge of AMC’s “Walking Dead” universe) saying that Lincoln would return in a series of films.
The character was last seen gravely wounded being flown away with Jadis (Polyanna McIntosh) on a helicopter towards an unknown destination. The 24-second footage that AMC showed on Friday featured that same helicopter and the words “Rick Grimes Returns.”
