Feature film talk of “The Walking Dead” has been floating around for a while now, and recently showrunner Glenn Mazzara addressed the rumors about the walkers making it to the silver screen. Read on for the skinny.
“The way I look at this prison is when the outbreak happened, there was a zombie movie that took place in a prison,” explains Mazzara. “One day maybe we’ll go back and film that movie. And now our guys come in, and they’re sort of the sequel to what happened. So there are survivors in that prison, damage in the prison,” he continues. “So walkers keep coming in; it’s never safe. They fooled themselves into thinking the farm was safe. From the jump they know this prison is not safe.”
