AMC wants to be in the Robert Kirkman business longterm, and who could blame them? The man hatched cable television's biggest hit at the moment, "The Walking Dead," so why not get on board his latest venture?

AMC announced today “Thief of Thieves,” a new project in development from “The Walking Dead” executive producer/writer Robert Kirkman and Chic Eglee ("The Shield," "Dexter") based upon the new comic Kirkman created under the same name. "The Walking Dead" executive producer David Alpert and Kirkman reunite with Eglee who will serve as showrunner. All three also serve as executive producers on the new skein. The comic book Thief of Thieves, a new crime caper published by Kirkman's Skybound imprint at Image Comics, debuted on February 8 and sold out the same day.

Said Kirkman on the matter: "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 developed "Thief of Thieves" based upon his experience in the writer's room of "The Walking Dead" after observing how the ideas got more creative and thrilling when a group of talented writers were working together to make the show as interesting as possible. The first arc of the comic is being written by Nick Spencer and Shawn Martinbrough is the artist. Kirkman created the story and has a "head writer" in charge of each arc of "Thief of Thieves."

The story focuses 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.”

Should be interesting to watch this project develop. We'll keep you in the loop as more info comes forth.
