Dead of Night Plot DetailsGoon
Dylan Dog has been up for adaptation for what seems like forever. Michele Saovi was once going to helm a Dylan Dog film before he changed the story up a bit and made Cemetery Man. So finally years later the film is finally coming together with Kevin Munroe at the helm with scribes Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly. Not to mention up and comer Brandon Routh (Superman).
Screen Daily today gave us a little sneek peak at some of the plot and they also have learned that the film will move the setting from London to New York. Dylan Dog is forced back into his nightmare investigations after he is approached by a woman who claims to have seen her father brutally murdered by a mysterious creature. With his street smart, his gun and a set of paranormal weapons, Dylan attempts to restore order both above and below ground.
In the U.S. the movie will be called Dead of Night while everywhere else the film will be sold as Dylan Dog. It makes sense since the comic is much more popular overseas than it ever was in North America. The original comic created by Tiziano Sclavi, "Dylan Dog" was first published in 1986 and has been translated into 17 languages. Platinum Studios and Hyde Park will produce.
