'The Walking Dead's' David Morrissey to lead BBC's 'The Driver'
The Hollywood Reporter says Morrissey is making a shorter commitment for his "The Walking Dead" follow-up. Morrissey will take the leading role in the new BBC three-part miniseries "The Driver."
The thriller, which comes from "Shameless UK" screenwriter Danny Brocklehurst and is directed by "Doctor Who's" Jamie Payne, tells the story of a troubled taxi driver. According to THR, Morrissey's character "blames himself and his inadequacies after a family mystery and makes the mistake of accepting an offer to start driving for a criminal gang."
"The Driver" is slated to start filming in the United Kingdom this week. It will get a 2014 release.
In addition to this project, Morrissey is also in the AMC pilot "Line of Sight."
