Thief Of Thieves Coming To AMC
AMC and ‘The Walking Dead‘ creator, Robert Kirkman are thick as thieves, these days. With Kirkman’s zombie drama now established as the greatest thing to happen to AMC since Don Draper, the network has decided to bring his latest comic book, “Thief of Thieves” to TV.
Kirkman’s latest book follows a thief, who you guessed, it steals art from other thieves. Conrad Paulson is a divorced father with an estranged son, trying to piece his life back together. He’s also the master thief known as “Redmond,” who the FBI would very much like to get their hands on.
“Much like ‘The Walking Dead’ brought horror to television in a unique and groundbreaking way, I feel ‘Thief of Thieves’ can do the same thing for heist stories, showing the humanity of all the characters, including the criminals,”
Kirkman told THR.
“AMC recognizes the limitless ideas generated by the comic industry,” “Their dedication to bringing ‘The Walking Dead’ to life as a TV show has been key to its success and I’m excited about the potential of ‘Thief of Thieves’ to reach similar levels of success.” “Working with AMC has been a tremendously positive experience and I’m looking forward to continuing and strengthening our relationships there and I can’t neglect to mention I’ve been dying to work with Chic again since we wrapped on ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 1.”
The deal was brokered by CAA, Katz Golden Rosenman for Kirkman, Behr Abramson for Alpert/Circle of Confusion, Michael Gendler for Eglee and Marci Wiseman, head of business affairs for AMC with Roger Arar at Loeb and Loeb.
Well this was a matter of time folks. AMC has struck the gold mine with Kirkman, and the level of freedom
they have given him its working.
Thief of thieves has been selling out and we are barely going to get the 3rd issue! This is amazing and I so stoked about it.
