Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins Horror Movie Shrine

Walking Dead Negan

The Walking Dead's Jeffrey Dean Morgan is taking some time away from zombies for a supernatural horror film from producers Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert.

Enertainment Weekly reports the Supernatural alum is set to play the lead in Shrine, a new horror film courtesy of Ghost House. Based on the novel by the late author James Herbert, Shrine focuses on a "disgraced journalist who discovers a series of seemingly divine miracles in a small New England town and uses them to resurrect his career, but the 'miracles' may have a much darker source."

Evan Spiliotopoulos, who wrote 2014's Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson and 2016's The Huntsman: Winter's War, will pen and direct the adaptation. Further casting is underway, so expect to learn Morgan's co-stars sometime soon. The film is expected to begin filming in February, which means Shrine will most likely hit theaters late 2020 or early 2021.

AMC's The Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nadia Hilker, Dan Fogler, Angel Theory, Lauren Ridloff and Eleanor Matsuura. The series returns for Season 10 on Oct. 6.
