I’m a sucker for those good old heist movies, in which there are all kinds of complicated plot twists and turns and surprises, highlighting the advanced master strategy of the protagonist – the forward-thinking nature of the (anti)hero we follow. Enter Thief of Thieves, the concept of which is literally like the above description, though things go awry and the tale moves into a completely singular and sometimes unexpected direction.
Thief of Thieves follows the master of pilfering renowned among the criminal netherworld and organized syndicates, known as Redmond (aka Conrad Paulson). He is the best of the best, and is known for taking down major heists. But in his mind, his time is up – it’s time to step out of the scandalous life, and retire. Despite this, constant evolving events cause him to get dragged back into the lifestyle.
His son, Augustus, tries to follow in his father’s shoes, more so from rebelliousness against Daddy Redmond. Augustus gets himself tied up in Mexican Cartel business, causing his father to step in and attempt to pull his son out of a hole that just keeps getting deeper and deeper.
In the last few minutes of the season two finale of The Walking Dead, Michonne saved Andrea from a couple of zombies by slashing them with a samurai sword, but we never got to see her face. Moments after the finale, it was announced that Danai Gurira (Treme) would be playing Michonne and since then, fans have been anxiously waiting to see her in action.
Now, we got our first look at Gurira as Michonne. Check out the image here below.
We all know that anything that is adapted for any screen will be changed or modified. So just how different the televised Michonne will be from her comic-book form is a mystery. The fact is, Michonne made her presence known. Below is what Robert Kirkman (the creator of the comic and executive producer of the TV adaptation) had to say about the character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, which debuted this first photo.
