'Walking Dead' Star Steven Yeun Tackles Action Movie 'Mayhem' (Exclusive)
Directed by Joe Lynch and produced by Circle of Confusion (which also produces The Walking Dead), the script by Matias Caruso tells the story of a virus capable of making people act out their wildest impulses.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Yeun will play Derek Saunders, an attorney who is framed by a co-worker and wrongfully fired on the very day the virus infects their corporate law office. Trapped in the quarantined building, our hero is forced to fight tooth and nail for not only his job, but also his life.
That's correct. "Our hero."
You know and love him on The Walking Dead, but this film would definitely mark Yeun's biggest role to date. His other credits include a supporting role in the 2014 indie sci-fi drama I Origins, voice work and minor turns on shows like The Legend of Korra, American Dad! and Drunk History.
Let us make no assumptions about what this movie role means for the fate of Glenn on The Walking Dead.
