It’s not just the big screen where comic book adaptations are heading fast and furious these days. Showtime is getting in on the act with “The Damned”, a new series project based on independent graphic novel and comic book publisher Oni Press’ comic book limited series.
According to Deadline it’s being written by David Hayter, who has co-penned several feature film comic book adaptations: X-Men, X2, and Watchmen.
Oni Press’ sister company Closed on Mondays Entertainment, the Littlefield Co., and CBS Television Studios are producing. Hayter, Closed on Mondays’ Eric Gitter, and Warren Littlefield are executive producing with Joe Nozemack and Andy Bourne also producing.
The Damned is described as a modern adaptation of the comic, written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Brian Hurtt. It will revolve around Eddie, a cursed man who is stuck in the middle of a turf war in modern-day Chicago where mobsters are demons. Eddie must play all the angles to keep the warring families at bay while trying to reclaim his soul.
Look for more soon!
