There are a lot of things in flux for AMC’s The Walking Dead, which premieres in October. Sure, Negan has been defeated on the show, and it looks as though the survivors will finally live in peace. Spoiler: As the new Comic-Con trailer reveals, they won’t. But the real drama is behind the scenes.
There have been a lot of casualties on The Walking Dead. One of the earliest and most tragic fatalities was the surprising end met by Dale Horvath, everyone's favourite fisherman hat-wearing grandpa figure. His death came as a shock for fans, but get ready for another shock - the actor himself was the one who pulled the plug on his tenure on the AMC series.
The Walking Dead has been a big money-making success at AMC, pulling in an impressive number of viewers for the network. But Skybound -- the entertainment company founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman -- just announced that Amazon will be the home of all their new TV content moving forward.
Zombie stories almost always have the same end game: Either humanity finds a cure, or everyone dies. In today's Walking Dead panel at San Diego Comic-Con, franchise creator Robert Kirkman said definitely his show will never, ever, look for a solution to the undead apocalypse.

After "categorically denying" that he was working on a remake of An American Werewolf in London back in August, it looks like Max Landis (son of the original film's writer-director, John Landis) has revised his position. Deadline just reported that the film is officially a go, and the younger Landis will write it.
