As Robert Kirkman is wrapping up his run on the book Invincible, it has been reported that Seth Rogan will be writing and directing a live action Invincible movie.
Invincible first was previewed in Tech Jacket #1 (2002) from Kirkman before moving on to his own series with the 2003 Invincible #1 which sells for $200+. There was also a Larry’s Comics convention variant that was limited to 1,000 copies.
Fans may finally get to see a live-action adaptation of Robert Kirkman’s other long-running comic book series. A film adaptation of “Invincible,” by Robert Kirkman, Cory Walker and Ryan Ottley, is in development at Universal Pictures, with Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg on board to write, direct and produce, as reported Tuesday by THR. Kirkman will also produce, as part of his Skybound Entertainment banner, which has a first-look deal with Universal.
“For nearly a decade I’ve had to endure the ‘what about Invincible?’ question as fans have watched ‘The Walking Dead’ grow into the multi-media monstrosity it has become over the years,” Kirkman said in a press release. “The answer was always that we were waiting for the right team to partner with. That team has arrived! The esteemed misters Goldberg and Rogen have proven themselves to be top-notch directors with a keen collective eye for stunning visuals after slumming it by writing hit after juggernaut hit.”
“We will not sleep until the movie is perfect! No matter how much damage it causes our bodies, minds, and our most intimate relationships with those we love, we will not rest until ‘Invincible’ is as great a movie as it deserves to be,” Rogen and Goldberg said in a joint statement.
