Guillermo del Toro and Gary Dauberman Writing "Deadman" Comic Book Adaptation

December 4, 2006

DeadmanVariety reports that Warner Brothers has brought on Gary Dauberman to work with Guillermo del Toro on a film adaptation of DC Comics' "Deadman." I don't know much about this comic, but anything that involves del Toro and his golden touch is… well, golden! The film is also a directing possibility for del Toro, which obviously all depends as his time develops, given he is working on Hellboy 2 and a number of other projects, however not all as the director.

Variety states the story of the comic as: "Deadman is the ghost of a murdered circus acrobat who has the power to possess the living in order to seek out his killer, as well as to help the innocent." Sounds good so far. In addition, they mention that "Dauberman impressed 'Deadman' producers with a spec script he had written for a Western zombie [film]." All in all sounds good. Anyone out there read "Deadman?" Does it have the right elements and stories to be a great film? More importantly, a del Toro comic book film?
