It’s been a while since we saw “The Walking Dead’s” Chandler Riggs in action, but that’s about to change. The actor who played Carl on the first eight seasons of the hit zombie show is set to star as Peter Parker in the upcoming horror movie spin on Spider-Man.
The film is from director Andy Chen, whose horror version of Shrek, titled Fiona, has had more than three million views on YouTube. Chen recently took to X/Twitter and Instagram to share the first footage of Riggs in his new role.
The film, still untitled, is set to debut before 2023 is up, which means it’s coming soon, according to ComicBook.
“I had this idea to make a horror Spider-Man fan film soon after my Shrek horror film blew up,” Chen wrote on Instagram. Plot details are undisclosed, but the cast includes Carl Addicott as Uncle Ben Parker, Holgie Forrester as Aunt May, Willy’s Wonderland actress Caylee Cown as Gwen Stacy, Kyra Gardner as Mary Jane Watson, and Andrew Hernon as J. Jonah Jameson.
