Guillermo del Toro Producing Deadman Movie
08.31.09 by BJSprecher
Yet another DC Comics character is preparing to leap off of the page and onto the big screen. Guillermo del Toro, director of the Hellboy movies (another comic book character), is producing a big-screen adaptation of Deadman, with Nikolaj Arcel (Island of Lost Souls) possibly taking the director's chair.
The character Deadman hasn't had much success in comic book form, so it's unclear how true to the source material del Toro plans to make the picture. In the comic books, circus trapeze artist Boston Brand is "resurrected" as a ghost by a Hindu goddess so that he can seek revenge on his murderer.
