Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg To Adapt Robert Kirkman Invincible Comic

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming-up once again to write, direct, and produce the big screen adaptation of Ryan Ottley, Cory Walker, and Robert Kirkman's comic book Invincible for Universal Pictures.

Invincible, which has been going since 2003, is Kirkman's second-longest running title right after The Walking Dead.

The story follows Mark Grayson, a normal high school senior with a normal part-time job and otherwise normal life, except his father Nolan is the superhero Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet. At the age of 17, Mark starts to display superpowers, and takes on the alias Invincible as he begins working as a superhero.

"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. "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."

"Invincible's surprising, edgy, shocking, and oftentimes blood-soaked story couldn't be in more capable hands. With the team of Rogen, Goldberg and Universal, I'm very confident this will be another superhero movie, in a long line of superhero movies that continues to prove that it's a viable, thrilling genre that will keep people coming to the cinema for years to come," Kirkman added.
The comic explores Mark's journey as he comes to terms with what it means to be the son of a superhero, and protecting planet Earth.

"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 jointly in a statement.

This won't be the first time Goldberg and Rogen tackle a comic book adaptation. The duo previously adapted the Garth Ennis, and Steve Dillon comic Preacher, whose second season is set to debut in June on AMC.
