When everybody gets captivated by a TV show, it’s almost a certainty that they will be begging for a big screen adaptation of it. It’s happened many times before and it’s happening once more with The Walking Dead. The popularity of the hit AMC drama continues to grow and now that the show is going into its third season, fans want to see that happen. Bloody Disgusting is reporting that there are talks (and I use that word very lightly) of a film happening.
The site reports that talks of a film adaptation are clearly “non-business conversations,” which means that it’s a long ways away from happening. Even if there is a feature film adaptation, there is the matter of finishing the television drama properly without making it look like the film was made to earn some extra cash. The Walking Dead has no end in sight, and with no scheduled end date, it’s hard to tell when serious talks of adapting the show into a film would begin.
There is no guarantee that even if the zombie drama completes its televised run that it would get made into a feature film. But popular shows like The X-Files and Sex In The City have gone on to be films after they ended their televised runs. Then there’s also the fact that a 24 movie that is currently in the works. So don’t count a film adaptation of The Walking Dead out yet, but don’t expect it too soon either.
Should The Walking Dead be adapted into a film after it ends its televised run or should it stay dead after it all ends?
