The Walking Dead movie is all set to break every box office record if the show runners decide to go for it. Walking dead’s executive producer Gale Anne Hurd is known to be a big time Hollywood producer who must be aware of the fact that TWD is the cash cow to milk. Currently, the Walking Dead TV series is about a full season away from adapting the latest over-sized TWD comic book story arc of 12 issues (unfolding in issues from #115 to 126) named “All Out War,”. The story has the definite feel of something that could translate to a long and eventful climax for the television show. As soon as the television show wraps up, we might hear the news about the movie. It would be an opportunity missed if a Walking Dead film wasn’t a prequel. Not only could we see the return of now-deceased fan favorite characters, but we could have all the big budget spectacle we could handle watching society crash down before our eyes in the most macro way.
Many of the characters’ lives prior to and immediately following had been discussed…but very little has been seen. Also, you could populate the film with a few “big stars” in key roles who either don’t make it to the end, are spared for a sequel, or who might be put in the shelf for a cameo of sorts in the series. It would be a win-win all the way around.
What you want in a feature film is an entry point for the uninitiated who may not have gotten around to the show.
