The Walking Dead’s Chandler Riggs Lands Role in Upcoming Horror Movie, Home Invasion
Chandler Riggs plays Rick Grimes’ possibly sociopathic son, Carl, on The Walking Dead, and it looks like the 14-year-old actor just can’t get enough of the horror genre. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Chandler was just added to the cast of an upcoming horror flick called Home Invasion, also starring Natalie Martinez, Ioan Gruffudd, and Bella Thorne.
Chandler is slated to play Natalie and Ioan’s son in the film, and Bella will star as his sister. As THR explains, the movie is about “a family imprisoned in their own home by intruders who play a life-and-death game in which the mysterious rules become clear as the night unfolds.” Sounds pretty creepy to us!
Sean Carter is set to direct the thriller, which already has a script by Joseph Dembner.
This is actually the second horror movie Chandler will appear in in the upcoming months. He recently wrapped Mercy, a supernatural indie that’s an adaptation of a Stephen King story. As far as we know, neither of these movies feature any walkers, but we suppose they can appear at any moment. You better be on high alert, Chandler!
Are you excited that Chandler is branching out into movies, or would you rather he focus on TWD? Share your thoughts below!
The Walking Dead airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
