Though vampire films have made somewhat of a comeback over the past half-decade the werewolves have taken a backseat. Sure, they have popped up here and there, but Warner Bros feels they deserve their own starring vehicle.

Warner Bros Adapts Benighted

According to Variety, Warner Bros. and Graham King's Initial Entertainment Group have acquired the Kit Whitfield werewolf novel Benighted for adaptation.

King will produce the bigscreen adaptation with Andrew Adamson, who'll develop it as a potential directing vehicle. Wait a sec, Andrew Adamson? The same director who has been fond of kiddie films such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Shrek? Yes, it would seem the director is looking to expand his horizons.

Adamson sparked to a book with core themes of racism and alienation wrapped in a drama with vast visual effects possibilities. Originally published in the U.K. under the title Bareback, Benighted is an alternate reality story in which 90% of the population is werewolf. Everyone else must keep the peace during the full moon.

"Andrew has the vision to turn this into an amazing film," King said. "His expertise will elevate this mystical world of werewolves and humans."

King just completed Martin Scorsese's The Departed, which Warner releases in October, and he's a producer on Ed Zwick-directed drama Blood Diamond, which WB bows in December.

Stay tuned for updates.
