First Look: Brandon Routh as Dylan Dog in Dead of Night!

May 6, 2009

Dylan Dog

Earlier this week, a few websites were flown down to New Orleans to check out the set of Dead of Night, the adaptation of the Dark Horse comic Dylan Dog. Ex-Superman Brandon Routh stars as Dylan, a penniless nightmare investigator who investigates the murder of his friend in a New Orleans populated by undead and supernatural creatures. Five of the websites who attended the set visit have debuted the first batch of photos from the film, including our first look at Routh as Dylan, Sam Huntington as his sidekick Marcus, and Taye Diggs as Vargas, the leader of a family of vampires. Check out all of the photos below.

Any of the photos can be clicked on for full-size versions. Dylan Dog is an Italian comic series created by Tiziano Sclavi that was first published in 1986. The series was brought over to the US by Dark Horse Comics, where Hellboy's Mike Mignola gave it a revamp with new cover art. Platinum Studios and Hyde Park Films are bringing us this adaptation, with a screenplay written by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly. Directing is Kevin Munroe, of the animated TMNT previously. Even though these photos may look bland, don't fear, because Dead of Night is packed full of vampires, werewolves, and zombies.
