Could AMC’s The Walking Dead Shuffle Onto the Big Screen?

Could AMC’s <i>The Walking Dead</i> Shuffle Onto the Big Screen?

While this should be marked “rumor” in enormous flashing letters, Bloody Disgusting contends AMC executives are considering the possibility of a Walking Dead feature film that would likely arrive in theaters following the conclusion of the hit series.

Considering the slow, even plodding, pace of the television show and the long-term narrative of the source material — the Robert Kirkman/Charlie Adlard comic is at 100 issues, with no end in sight — a relatively brisk two-hour movie may seem a bit daunting, or at least limiting. But the website notes that The Walking Dead was shopped around as a film before it landed at the cable network.

And it certainly wouldn’t be the only time a television series has been continued on the big screen; shows ranging from Firefly and The X-Files to Sex and the City and Twin Peaks have done so, with varied degrees of success.

However, even if there is any truth to this rumor, a movie would likely be several years away. A ratings hit, The Walking Dead begins its third season in October; it’s doubtful AMC is in any hurry to rush the series toward its conclusion.
