Though many names have been added to the ever growing list of talent that will be fending off the flesh eaters in Frank Darabont’s adaptation of the Robert Kirkman zombie epic The Walking Dead, one role and player has been kind of elusive to track down. Until now.
Dread Central has learned exclusively today that young Chandler Riggs (The Wronged Man, Get Low) has signed on to play the role of Carl Grimes, Rick’s son. Those fans familiar with this character know just how pivotal he is to the story, and we’re confident Darabont has made sure that the young lad has the chops to pull it off!
The Walking Dead is based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic series. It chronicles the months and years following a zombie apocalypse. Frank Darabont is the project’s writer, sometimes director, and exec producer with Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing. KNB will be handling the effects, and Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, and Andrew Lincoln are all set to star.
