Hi, Bryan Here…
AMC has started the engine on another project with Robert Kirkman (the creator of Walking Dead). This time the project is titled ‘Thief of Thieves’ which is based on the comic series of the same name by Robert Kirkman. “Much likeThe 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.
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.”
I can see this getting HUGE ratings too on AMC, but not quite being as popular as the zombie epic. Hopefully I’m wrong. Now I just need the ‘Invincible’ series and we will all be happy here at Boomstick HQ.
