Andrew Lincoln Set To Return In Walking Dead Movie Trilogy!
Immediately after his final episode on The Walking Dead, AMC announced that a series of films that focused on Andrew Lincoln’s character, Rick Grimes, would soon be going into production. Since then, AMC has been rather silent about what it will involve but we have been able to learn a few things since that big episode.
Since Rick Grimes departed The Walking Dead, we have of course learned that there will be a trilogy of films based around Andrew Lincoln’s character. The films will reportedly be stretched out over the course of a few years. The exact release dates have not been released so we cannot say how many years will pass between each installment.
What we do know about the individual films is sadly limited. We do know, however, that the films will, at the start, focus on Rick Grimes trying to get back to his family. As time goes on this is expected to change and the films are expected to take place in the northeast corner of the United States.
In a press release, AMC stated that the films would go into previously unexplored parts of the apocalypse, “The first film will explore the story of where Rick is taken and what he faces in a new corner of the zombie apocalypse.”
Currently, it is unknown who will be joining Andrew Lincoln in the cast. As of right now, none of The Walking Dead‘s supporting characters are signed on to the film. However, several of the shows main cast have signed on to additional Walking Dead related content that could potentially expand to the Rick Grimes trilogy.
