Dreamworks to Adapt ‘The Damned’
Oni Press just landed a new movie deal, with Dreamworks picking up the rights to the series The Damned.
The comic, created by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, is set in Los Angeles during Prohibition and follows a detective who stumbles onto some supernatural weirdness while investigating a case.
The past couple months have been a Hollywood boon for Oni, with things moving forward on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (likely starring Michael Cera) and Ben Stiller picking up the option on the upcoming The Return of King Doug.
Things have also been pretty busy for screenwriter David DiGilio. He’s been signed up to adapt The Damned for Dreamworks, and he’s already adapting the movie version of his comic book series North Wind, published by BOOM! Studios.
