Walking Dead Creator Talks Thief of Thieves for TV
Robert Kirkman already has his hands full with the four comic books he is writing (The Walking Dead, Invincible, Super Dinosaur and Thief of Thieves) and being very involved in The Walking Dead AMC series, but now it looks like he may have another TV series in the works, based on Thief of Thieves. I don’t know where he finds the time to do all this work. Kirkman must be some kind of superhuman. That, or he just loves writing so much it’s all he ever wants to do. And more power to him. He’s a great writer. I’d be a little disheartened if he wasn’t passionate about it.
In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Kirkman talked about where the AMC adaptation of Thief of Thieves was development wise. Currently, a script has been ordered and is being written by Chic Eglee, and if AMC likes the script they will order a pilot and from there a series may or may not be picked up. It’s pretty standard television development. Interestingly, Kirkman pitched the idea of Thief of Thieves to AMC while he was still developing the comic book, making it seem as if he came up with the idea for television and then decided to turn it into a comic book. However, that is not the case. He was merely doing both concurrently, but will always be for the comic first.
Tying Thief of Thieves even more closely to television, Kirkman has a team of writers, similar to a TV show’s writer’s room, that work together to write the comic book. They have already begun work on the upcoming story arcs, with the plot mapped out up to issue #25. If you haven’t read Thief of Thieves yet, I suggest you take a look. It follows a master thief who, after retiring from his criminal life, begins stealing from other thieves in order to atone for his past. Along the way he finds trouble on both sides of the law. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
