The Walking Dead star lands his next role in a fake ventriloquist horror film


The Walking Dead Star Jeffrey Dean Morgan has booked his next film role in producer Joe Carnahan’s new horror flick.

Felixdescribed as “Super 8 meets Child’s play“, will see Morgan play the role of a worried father as his child becomes involved with an Annabelle-esque doll.

The film will follow young Charlie, played by The Haunting of Bly Manorby Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, as he and his best friend try to make their own movie and become “great Hollywood directors”.

Inspiration for their film is quickly found in Félix, “an old ventriloquist doll” that Charlie’s father (Morgan) finds among his late mother’s belongings.

But as the doll becomes the antagonist of Charlie and Jimmy’s movie, it sets off “an increasingly sinister and disturbing chain of events” that could prove Felix has a mind of his own.
