Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s company Skybound Entertainment has inked a one year first look film deal with Universal. Skybound currently houses all of Kirkman’s comic book creations, including The Walking Dead, The Astounding Wolf-Man, Outcast and Invincible. The company is set to release their first feature film, Air, in August. The film stars Norman Reedus and Djimon Hounsou from the Walking Dead series. Kirkman shares Skybound with his partner David Alpert, who executive produces The Walking Dead.
In regards to the first look deal, Kirkman responded,
We couldn’t find better partners than the team at Universal. I believe this partnership is going to help David and I achieve all the goals we set out to accomplish when we founded Skybound five years ago.”
