Finally, the Deadman is moving. Though it was announced a while back that Guillermo del Toro would be producing and possibly directing the adaptation of the DC Comic, things have been very quiet on the Deadman front since.
Then this morning Variety got world that a newcomer by the name of Gary Dauberman impressed Warner Bros. with a spec script for a zombie Western but, instead of doing his movie, they handed him Deadman to help write with del Toro to make sure it’s done right. Not a bad deal to start off with!
Deadman is a DC Comic about the ghost of a murdered circus acrobat who can possess the living in order to find out who killed him, but manages to become a bit of a hero at the same time by helping out those in danger. Del Toro is producing alongside Don Murphy’s Angry Films, no word was given as to when shooting would be begin.
Wish you could write with the master in our forums!
