Norman Reedus captured our hearts as the formidable Daryl Dixon on AMC's The Walking Dead, and it seems that the actor will be continuing his relationship with AMC as Deadline has reported that he's developing a series based on Russ Meyer's cult classic Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! for the network.

"I’ve been watching Russ Myers’ film since I was a kid, wearing my Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill! shirt to school," said Reedus. "It’s safe to say I’m beyond inspired by Russ’ style of filmmaking and I am over the moon excited for the opportunity to reimagine this story for the modern world." The original 1965 film followed three go-go dancers as they set off on a spree of kidnapping and murder in the California desert, and Deadline says that Reedus' TV show will "pay homage to the original but also go beyond the fast cars and karate kicks to center in on a strong of strong female characters and overturning of cultural norms that was deeper in the bones of the movie." The Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! project is still in the early stages, but Norman Reedus will serve as executive producer through his bigbaldhead production banner and has the full support of Russ Meyer's estate.

Production on the eleventh and final season of The Walking Dead is well underway, but Norman Reedus' time with the zombie franchise is far from over as he's slated to reprise his role of Daryl Dixon in a spin-off series that will also feature Melissa McBride's Carol Peletier. The final season of The Walking Dead is set to debut on AMC on August 22, 2021.
