Scott Gimple, the producer of The Walking Dead, has provided a pre-production update on the upcoming Rick Grimes feature film, starring Andrew Lincoln following his departure from the long-running TV series.
In a recent discussion with ComicBook.com during the virtual Comic-Con, Gimple explained the team is currently “tweaking and experimenting”, while also claiming Lincoln is “super involved” with the creative aspect of the project.
“So much of what we’ve been doing is honing and tweaking and experimenting, and we’re just in the lab with it,” Gimple said. “And we’ve been playing around a lot. We were doing that before and now it’s forced upon us. We don’t know when we would be doing it if everything was finished right now, we just don’t know, but we’re still in the lab. We’re still goofing around with it. We’re still playing around with it.”
Lincoln is “super involved” with the project, Gimple added. “He throws around the football with the rest of us. He’s very, very interested in this thing. And I got to tell you, he’s itching to get back, too. We all are.”
Gimple’s comments on the upcoming feature film closely resemble Robert Kirkman’s recent update on the project as he claimed the ongoing global health crisis has inadvertently made the project better as they can spend more time revisiting the scripts.
While we don’t know much regarding the plot details of the Rick Grimes focused feature film, Gimple has also previously teased that the fan-favourite character Michonne – played by Danai Gurira – could potentially reappear in the upcoming movie trilogy after leaving the series during the tenth season.
