Brandon Routh as Dylan Dog in the First 'Dead of Night' Trailer
This is one of those "ohhhh yea!" kind of movies. We've been writing about this Dylan Dog adaptation for years, even posting a bunch of first look photos more than a year ago, but haven't heard a single word about it since. I'm interested because it's the next movie from TMNT director Kevin Munroe and because it stars Brandon Routh, who (especially after Scott Pilgrim) just kicks ass. A new promo trailer (via Vlicious) for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night recently appeared on the web and unfortunately it looks pretty awful. Routh looks awesome, but the rest not so much. And yes, that is Taye Diggs as the head vampire. Tread carefully!
Watch the first promo trailer for Kevin Munroe's Dylan Dog: Dead of Night:
The adventures of supernatural private eye Dylan Dog (Routh), who seeks out monsters (werewolves, vampires, zombies) of the Louisiana bayou wearing his signature red shirt, black jacket, and blue jeans.
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night (as it's currently titled) is directed by Canadian filmmaker Kevin Munroe, who's feature debuted was the animated TMNT, but this is his first live-action flick. The script was co-written by writers Thomas Dean Donnelly & Joshua Oppenheimer (of Thoughtcrimes, Sahara, A Sound of Thunder). It's based on Tiziano Sclavi's Italian comic book series first published in 1986 (and re-released in the US by Dark Horse). Dead of Night doesn't have a distributor yet, but we expect to hear more soon. Thoughts?
