‘The Walking Dead’s’ Andrew Lincoln Movies Land Theatrical Distribution

Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes will return to The Walking Dead franchise — but it will no longer be on AMC.

In a surprise announcement that capped two hours of back-to-back panels for Fear the Walking Dead and the flagship series, the latter event ended with a cryptic teaser promoting Lincoln’s return: “only in theaters.”  

The 24-second teaser featured the helicopter — the one last seen carrying a near-death Rick Grimes — flying off to an unknown destination (complete with high-rise buildings) with the text: Rick Grimes Returns: Only in theaters. (Watch the promo, below.)

A tweet from the show’s official AMC show account confirmed as much noting that the untitled Walking Dead movie would be distributed by Universal Pictures. A release date has not yet been determined.

Lincoln departed the flagship AMC drama during season nine with plans to reprise his role as the beleaguered former sheriff in three TV movies for the basic cable network. AMC at the time was searching for a financial partner to co-release the project. That partner has now been revealed to be Universal Pictures, the film studio where Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has a first-look deal to create movies. A feature film adaptation of Kirkman’s comic book series Invincible, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, is also set up at Universal.
