Constantin Film takes The Walk

Constantin Film, the German prodco behind the Resident Evil movie franchise, has picked up the rights to adapt Lee Goldberg’s bestselling novel The Walk as a drama series.

Constantin has acquired Goldberg’s script, which he adapted from the thriller, and will now develop it as a television drama.

In The Walk, after an apocalyptic earthquake, a studio exec is making his way by foot from downtown LA to the San Fernando Valley to find his family and has to reluctantly team up with an unusual traveller going the same direction. The walk proves to be full of unexpected traps and challenges.

Goldberg’s TV credits include showrunning CBS series Diagnosis Murder and Martial Law, writing multiple episodes of USA Network series Monk and co-creating Mystery 101, Hallmark’s series of TV movies.

Robert Kulzer of Constantin Film is producing The Walk with Monella Kaplan of eMotion Entertainment. Constantin’s Alex Westmore and Colin Scully are the creative executives handling the project.

Nick Hanks, Constantin’s senior exec VP of business and legal affairs and operations, negotiated the deal on Constantin’s behalf.

Kulzer said: “Lee’s adaptation of his own novel is a brilliant exploration of the human condition by using the ‘Big One’ as a backdrop to create unforgettable moments of hair-raising tragicomedy.”

Constantin Film is best known for the Resident Evil franchise of six movies. A reboot, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, is set to be released on November 24. Other credits include Black Beauty at Disney+ and Monster Hunter.

eMotion Entertainment and Kaplan’s previous feature credits include See You Soon with Liam McIntyre and Harvey Keitel. Kaplan is currently casting action-comedy Verona Spies with director Frank Coraci and drama 88 Keys, with Peter Webber attached to direct.
