Dylan Dog, the very popular Italian comic series published in English by Dark Horse as The Dylan Dog Case Files, has a movie adaptation coming out! Dylan Dog: Dead of Night stars Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, Chuck) as the paranormal investigator in New Orleans. Also appearing in the film are Sam Huntington (who was also in Superman Returns as Jimmy Olsen) and Taye Diggs. The film is from Platinum Studios (Cowboys & Aliens).
I had no idea this movie was due out next month (U.S. release date of April 29), but this oddly written production blog suggests some strange behind-the-scenes happenings, as well as a delayed release from last year, which might explain the lack of promotion. The blend of horror and comedy looks amusing, and I like Routh. Here’s the trailer; what do you think?
