Robert Kirkman tweeted this morning that Cinemax has officially moved a television adaptation of "Outcast", the just released horror comic series by him and Paul Azaceta, into production. Kirkman had written the script for the pilot episode, which will be produced by Kirkman, David Alpert, Sue Naegle, Chris Black, and Sharon Tal Yguado. What's really impressive about this whole thing is how Cinemax was so impressed by Outcast #1, which came out late last month, that they decided to move forward on the project without even seeing a second issue of the comic.
Don't expect any casting to be announced at this year's SDCC, since the project was only approved this week.
Congratulations to Kirkman, who has successfully joined the Mark Millar Club of Making Comics Solely as A Means of Getting Live-Action Media Pitched.
