Robert Kirkman Offers Up A Brief Update On AMC's THIEF OF THIEVES

Speaking at the "We Love the Dead" panel at the first ever MorrisonCon in Las Vegas, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman has offered up the following update on the status of AMC's planned small screen adaptation of Thief of Thieves.

Thief of Thieves was created by Robert Kirkman, and focuses on Conrad Paulson, a highly-successful thief who quits the business and begins a new life stealing from other thieves. Featuring numerous writers and artists, the series has become one of Image Comics' best-seling titles in their Skybound imprint. It has in fact become such a hit that AMC (the network behind The Walking Dead and other critically acclaimed series' such as Breaking Bad and Mad Men) are already working on adapting it to the small screen. Thanks to Comic Book Resources, we have the following update from the "We Love the Dead" panel at MorrisonCon today.

Kirkman offered an update on the AMC "Thief of Thieves" TV series, which is currently in the script-writing stage. Once the pilot script is finished, then the network will read it and give notes and then they may get the chance to shoot a pilot. Kirkman said writer Charles Eglee was doing "an amazing job" on the script.

'We live the dead' sounds like a nice spinoff of Alice coopers 'I love the dead'

Speaking if Kirkman, what's the status with the Invincible movie? I know Kirkman wrote a script, and sold it to a studio. I find it surprising there hasn't been more interest in making the film after his success with Walking Dead. Or at least more news (especially here!) about it.
