After the finale of The Walking Dead’s third season yesterday, Robert Kirkman has told MTV that a movie of the successful series is being prepared now. The movie will be a prequel to the third season and tell the story of the Governor’s life after the zombie apocalypse (as told in Kirkman’s novel “The Walking Dead”).
In a surprising move, Paramount Pictures has hired up and coming Young Adult novelist Anna Shinoda to write the script of the movie.
Shinoda spilled the beans in a blog post shortly after Kirkman’s announcement:
“I’m very excited to take on this challenge and I want to thank Robert for trusting me with this.”
Insiders claim that Shinoda has ordered a special PG rated version of the series, because she is allergic to violent images.
According to AMC, they are currently talking to different directors, such as Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese and Michael Bay, but a final decision has yet to be made.
