AMC Developing New Comic-Based Series From ‘The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman
By NELLIE ANDREEVA | Wednesday April 11, 2012 @ 10:14am PDTTags: AMC, Robert Kirkman, Thirf Of Thieves Comments (0) Posted ImagePosted ImageAMC has put in development Thief of Thieves, a new project from The Walking Dead executive producer/writer Robert Kirkman and Chic Eglee based upon Kirkman’s new comic of the same name. “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,” said Kirkman, on whose 2003 Walking Dead comic the hit AMC zombie series is based. Thief of Thieves, which Kirkman based on his experience in the writer’s room of The Walking Dead, centers on master thief Conrad Paulson who, while attempting to reconcile with his estranged wife and son, vows to walk the straight and narrow, only to discover he’s completely addicted to the thrill of stealing. Now he must feed his addiction by stealing only what has been stolen, as the “Thief of Thieves.” The first arc of the comic is being written by Nick Spencer; Shawn Martinbrough is the artist. Eglee will serve as showrunner of the potential TV series and will executive produce alongside Kirkman and Walking Dead executive producer David Alpert.

Interesting, but sounds like Dexter only with stealing what is stolen instead of killing the killers Posted Image

Simple plot, we get in, we get out, nobody gets hurt.

For a reasonable fee, I will quell minor outbreaks, enforce quarantines, and dispatch infected relatives.

Sounds pretty good, worth checking out. Too bad they can't cast Jon Bernthal as the thief, it seems he misses his acting buddies on The Walking Dead pretty badly. Maybe he would see them on occasion if they were at the same network. Now that he is lead man on TNT's new show L.A. Noir, with Frank Darabont as director of the show...wonder if some fellow Walking Dead actors might end up on L.A. Noir too-- like Dale, people who bit the dust on The Walking Dead get reincarnated on L.A. Noir...that would be cool!

Shane Walsh: Four men, four rounds. What are the odds, huh?
Let's just hope four is your lucky number.

The first issue was interesting. I'm eager to read the second as soon as it comes out.
