Another day, another adaptation. Next on tap is a cinematic retelling of the Dark Horse graphic novel The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde. Read on for all the details regarding who will be drinking Jekyll’s concoction next.

According to The Wrap, screenwriter Albert Torres (Akira) has come on board to re-write the script for a feature film adaptation based on the graphic novel of the same name, which was written by Cole Haddon and published in 2011.

The Strange Case of Mr. Hyde follows Dr. Jekyll after he is allegedly rehabilitated and released from prison to help hunt a new monster who appears to be using an improved version of the infamous Hyde serum.

The film is being produced by Dark Horse Entertainment, Skydance Productions, and the Mark Gordon Company. The now classic characters Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde first appeared in a novella by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886.
