Three Walking Dead movies greenlit!

And guess who will star!?

Tonight, Andrew Lincoln said goodbye to “The Walking Dead”.

Sorta. Kinda.

Careful not to kill off its central hero, Rick Grimes, the show let Lincoln exit the series in a non-traditional fashion – paving the way for a return. A return that has already been announced.

Shortly after the broadcast, AMC announced that Lincoln would be back in zombie-hunter guise for three “Walking Dead” telemovies.

Unlike the series, the films tell original Grimes stories and will encompass a bigger budget than traditional episodes. Scott M.Gimple is writing the first film.

“We have a lot on the horizon – starting with a new epic featuring one of the greatest leading actors in television history and one of the best people I’ve ever met,” said Gimple. “These films are going to be big evolutions of what we’ve been doing on the show, with the scope and scale of features. We’re starting with the first part of the continuing story of Rick Grimes, and there is much more on the way, featuring yet-unseen worlds of ‘The Walking Dead’ and faces from the show’s past, as well as new characters we hope to become favorites, told by TWD veterans and emerging voices. We want to break new ground with different, distinct stories, all part of the same world that’s captured our imagination for nearly a decade of the Dead.”

“They’re not just longer episodes,” the captain of the ‘Walking Dead’ world said, adding that Robert Kirkman is heavily involved.

Lincoln tells The New York Times that the films will largely be gritty, solo adventures for Grimes.

“We talked about “Unforgiven,” the Clint Eastwood movie, which I admire greatly. There’s something about Eastwood, who he is as a gunslinger, as an iconic kind of American hero, rolling around in pig swill at the beginning of the movie. You know what he’s capable of, and I thought the idea of a character that the audience knows and has lived with — and who has oscillated between psycho and father for nine years — to start in a completely different place, was a really interesting, crazy place to begin. I want to know why we keep seeing helicopters flying around. What’s going on? What have the grown-ups been doing while we’ve been scrambling around in the dirt?”

He won’t be in it, but Sylvester Stallone is set to relaunch one of his other famous characters from the Reagan-era.

During a Q&A with Stallone at the Cannes Film Festival this week, the star of September’s “Last Blood” revealed plans to bring ‘Cobra’ to the small screen.

“That should have been another franchise because that character was so cool. And I blew it. My personal life got in the way. But we’re trying to bring it back as a streaming TV series. Bring out the zombie squad. I’m long gone, but the idea is really good.”

The film, released in 1986 and directed by George P.Cosmatos, told of a tough-on-crime street cop must protect the only surviving witness to a strange murderous cult with far reaching plans.

‘Come here little one, don’t be afraid..’

The oft-muttered “Obi-Wan Kenobi” project popped it’s viewfinder from the ice of Hoth again today.

Floated for a couple of years now, a new series or film franchise fixing on the lost years – that time between “Revenge of the Sith” and “A New Hope” – of fuzzy-faced Jedi, ‘Old Ben’.

We Got This Covered have an update on the project today, suggesting it’s headed – like a couple of other “Wars”-related projects – to Disney+, the streaming service that will also play host to Jon Favreau’s “Mandalorian” series.
