AMC to Develop Television Adaptation of Crime Comic Thief of Thieves

Thief of Thieves (AMC)

AMC is developing a television adaptation of the new crime comic series Thief of Thieves. (The first issue came out just this past February; the third issue publishes today.)

Written by Robert Kirkman and Nick Spencer with art by Shawn Martinbrough, the comic is centered around Conrad Paulson, who lives a secret double life as master thief Redmond. There is nothing he can't steal, nothing he can't have … except for the life he left behind. Now, with a grown son he hardly knows, and an ex-wife he never stopped loving, Conrad must try to piece together what's left of his life, before the FBI finally catch up to him … but it appears they are the least of his worries.

"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 says.
