Deadman Deadman
Though the DC comic book Deadman has taken in quite a few rewards since its birth in 1967, the character was one that most studios have dodged for more popular series. Fortunately for DC, Batman Begins was a new awakening showing that their comic book adaptations can be just as good as or better than Marvel and, with the acquisition war for graphic novels now occurring, it was only a matter of time before Deadman got added to some studio's list.

Warner Bros to Adapt Deadman

Only a few minutes ago we discussed Warner Bros' acquisition of Doom Patrol (here) and it now looks like the studio has continued to fill their daily fetish for DC.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. Pictures will also create a big-screen adaptation of the DC Comic Deadman with Guillermo del Toro, Don Murphy and Susan Montford set to produce.

The character is a ghost who, when alive, was a circus acrobat named Boston Brand. He was murdered during a trapeze performance by an unknown assailant but his spirit was granted the power to possess the living in order to search for his murderer as well as help the innocent.

Warner Bros is currently looking for a scribe to give the story a more contemporary take.

Guillermo del Toro's most recent project, Pan's Labyrinth, is due out this December.

Murphy's Angryfilms is editing the Michael Davis-directed Shoot 'Em Up starring Clive Owen and has Transformers currently in production.

Stay tuned for updates.
