AMC’s “The Walking Dead” is currently shooting in and around Atlanta, Georgia, and today we get our first look at Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, a small-town cop who leads a group of survivors in their struggle against a world besieged by zombies.
The photo is from when Rick is en route to Atlanta and his car breaks down. This is just before he gets on a horse and rides it downtown.
As series creator Robert Kirkman said about Lincoln when he was first cast in the role, “Andrew Lincoln, wow — what an amazing find this guy is. Writing Rick Grimes month after month in the comic series, I had no idea he was an actual living, breathing human being, and yet, here he is. I couldn’t be more thrilled with how this show is coming together.”
Along with Lincoln, the cast includes Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey DeMunn, Sarah Wayne Callies, Laurie Holden, Steven Yeun, Michael Rooker, and Chandler Riggs.
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, director of the pilot, and exec producer with Anne Hurd and David Alpert also exec producing. KNB will be handling the effects, and AMC has already ordered six episodes.
