With The Walking Dead pulling in over 9 million viewers with each episode, it was only a matter of time before the show's stars began snagging movie roles. And the first to grab a starring role is... Carl.


Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes on the zombie apocalypse drama, is joining Super 8's Joel Courtney is joining the Stephen King adaptation, Mercy. Based on the 1984 King short story 'Gramma', Mercy tells the story of two brothers who travel with their mom to take care of their grandmother. However, no one is aware that Grams is actually a witch who made a disturbing pact years ago. The Haunting In Connecticut's Peter Cornwell is directing so expect to see some creepy things going in or coming out of these kids' mouths. Whether weird voices, vomit, or ghost smoke. (THR)
