Robert Kirkman's Skybound Entertainment has inked a deal with Sony Television to form a new production company - Skybound Galactic - which will develop television projects based on Skybound comic books as well as properties from other Image imprints, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Projects in development under Skybound Galactic include adaptations of Kirkman's Thief of Thieves and Josh Williamson and Mike Henderson's Nailbiter. Additionally, Skybound Galactic is developing adaptations of Top Cow's The Darkness and Think Tank under executive producers Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins.
“Combining the multiplatform capabilities of Skybound and Top Cow’s extensive library of IP with the best worldwide distribution in Sony is an unbelievable opportunity,” said Rick Jacobs, newly named CEO of Skybound Galactic. “I’m looking forward to continuing Skybound’s mission to help creators expand their content into new markets.”
