AMC hasn't been shy with its upcoming drama addition 'Turn,' though we haven't seen very much of its other major 2014 offering 'Halt & Catch Fire,' starring 'Guardians of the Galaxy''s Lee Pace as a pioneer of the computer revolution. Good news! The network has officially set a June premiere for the drama, but opted not to move forward with 'Walking Dead' star David Morrisey's new series, 'Line of Sight.'
Line of Sight
We were shocked enough when 'The Walking Dead''s Governor survived the events of season 3 finale "Welcome to the Tombs," let alone his brief return in this past Sunday's "Internment," but we'd have to be crazy to think AMC would allow David Morrissey's villainous character to survive another season, right? Right?
Fans of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' were surprised enough that David Morrissey's villainous Governor survived the year to menace Rick Grimes again in season 4, but has a new casting confirmed the Governor's number to be up? Morrissey has officially joined upcoming AMC sci-fi pilot 'Line of Sight' in a leading role, and something tells us even the Governor can't be two places at once! Well, without a sword, anyway.
With 'Breaking Bad' on its way out and 'Mad Men' closing up shop after next season, AMC's newest dramas could easily make or break its pedigree of Emmy-winning and buzzworthy series. While 'The Walking Dead' has made AMC no stranger to sci-fi, upcoming pilot 'Line of Sight' attaches a bit more acclaim to itself today in hiring 'Silence of the Lambs' director Jonathan Demme to helm the debut episode.
Video games have stolen so much from movies and movies have stolen so much from video games that it was bound to happen: an entire action movie shot from the POV of soldier in the style of a first person shooter. 'Line of Sight' is that movie and Mike McCoy (who co-directed 'Act of Valor') is the director.
