The Walking Dead is as popular as ever in its seventh season on AMC, but showrunner Scott Gimple has his sights set on an even higher prize: an expansion to the big screen.

When asked about the possibility of The Walking Dead becoming a film, here’s what he said to

“That question comes up every now and again,” Gimple said. “I’m sure one way or another, one day, it’ll happen. I think it would be cool.”

“William Shatner as Rick. We’ll get Edward James Olmos as Daryl. Hit all the big shows!” Gimple joked about a potential reboot on the big screen. “Matthew Fox as the Governor!”


So... doesn’t sound like the powers that be behind The Walking Dead are making any actual plans for a movie just yet. That said, though Gimple is clearly making a funny in his above comments, a zombie-fighting Edward James Olmos would actually be an amazing sight to behold.
