Is The Walking Dead: The Movie in the works?

Rumor now has it that AMC wants to make a movie version of Robert Kirkman's comic. They've already got a very successful television series — we can easily see how this zombie show could spark a two-hour, extra-gory flick. Bloody Disgusting reports that AMC is pursuing a Walking Dead movie, and points out that the first pitch for a Walking Dead screen adaptation was cinematic.

Bloody Disgusting further surmises that the movie would take place after the show concludes, much like Sex and the City and The Smurfs. Unlike these two films, we hope a Walking Dead movie doesn't inspire us to jam forks in our eyes.
