Director Kevin Muroe is bringing a new movie adaptation to screen: this time it’s Dead of Night, a movie based on the horror comic series, ‘Dylan Dog,’ created by Tiziano Sclavi. The film is starring Brandon Routh (the guy from Superman Returns) in the lead role along Sam Huntington, Anita Briem and Taye Diggs. No official release date yet, listed for 2009 at IMDb but more probably early 2010.
Here’s a first look at the movie Dead of Night:
“The adventures of supernatural private eye, Dylan Dog, who seeks out the monsters of the Louisiana bayou in his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans.”
A few words from Director Kevin Munroe:
Well basically, Munroe, he’s saying that Dylan Dog is like Superman (with no superpowers though…), so I suppose that Brandon Routh is a good fit for the role in the movie Dead of Night…
