David Morrissey, the British actor known for his role as The Walking Dead’s Governor, is taking a turn behind the camera as he and three other filmmakers have formed On the Corner, a film and television production company.
Morrissey formed the production firm with director Asif Kapadia and producers James Gay-Rees and Jolyon Symonds. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company is currently working on a follow-up to Kapadia’s BAFTA award-winning Senna, and has already signed on for a two-year first look deal with BBC Worldwide.
The company is also currently in production on the tentatively titled film Amy, a feature documentary on the life and death of Amy Winehouse; Palio, a documentary on the Palio horse races in Siena, Italy; and the Morrissey-starring film The Driver. Morrissey and Kapadia previously worked on Standard Operating Procedure, a four-minute video starring Yasiin Bey (a.k.a. Mos Def), who subjects himself to the force-feeding procedures at Guantanamo Bay.
