Created in 2003, The series is Kirkman’s second-longest running title after the pop culture phenomenon The Walking Dead. Rogen and Goldberg are set to write, direct, and produce the adaptation. Kirkman has also signed on to produce under his production banner Skybound Entertainment alongside David Alpert, Bryan Furst, and Sean Furst. The project falls under Skybound’s first-look deal with Universal. James Weaver from Point Grey will also produce.
Rogen and Goldberg have worked on numerous projects together including the hit comedy This is the End and the Neighbors franchise. They also served as producers for James Franco’s The Disaster Artist and are currently filming the sci-fi comedy Future Man.
