Invincible -- based on the Kirkman comic -- (W/D: Rogen/Goldberg)

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are teaming up with Robert Kirkman to bring The Walking Dead creator’s comic book Invincible to the big screen for Universal Pictures.

Rogen and Goldberg will write, direct and produce the adaptation of the comic, which has been continually published since 2003.

Kirkman will also produce, via his shingle Skybound Entertainment and his Skybound cohorts David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst. The project falls under Skybound’s first-look deal with Universal. James Weaver, a principal with Rogen and Goldberg at their banner Point Grey, also will produce.

Invincible is Kirkman’s second-longest running title after Walking Dead and follows Mark Grayson, a normal high school student with just one difference between him and his peers — his father is the most powerful superhero on the planet, and he, too, will inherit his own set of superpowers.

The comic book, which Kirkman created with Ryan Ottley and Cory Walker, is now on its 133rd issue and explores Mark’s journey as he discovers what it means to be the son of the hero, named Omni-Man, and the reality behind his greatest responsibility: protecting planet Earth.

“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,” said Kirkman. “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.”

Kirkman continued: “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.”

"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

Rogen and Goldberg made their debut as a directing team on 2013’s apocalyptic comedy This Is the End and followed that up with 2014’s The Interview. The comic book fans then adapted the Garth Ennis-Steve Dillon comic The Preacher, co-writing and directing the pilot and serving as exec producers on the AMC show, whose second season debuts in June.

The duo is now working on directing and exec producing the Hulu comedy series Future Man.

Kirkman is repped by CAA, Circle of Confusion and Katz Golden. Rogen and Goldberg are repped by UTA and Felker Toczek.

Interesting, I could see it.

Invincible is my nerdy claim to fame. I named the letter page, a name which Scott Kurtz once dubbed "Gay."
