NILES' WAKE THE DEAD PICKED UP
Dimension Films has picked up rights to Steve Niles' comic book Wake the Dead, a supernatural series which is a retelling of the Frankenstein legend in the style of cult favorites The Crow and Darkman.
The five-part series is published by IDW Publishing. The company's president Ted Adams will executive produce the project along with Niles.
The two are also behind Niles' 30 Days of Night comic, currently set up with Sony for Sam Raimi to produce with Dark Horse Entertainment. The new deal also gives Dimension first crack at Niles' upcoming comicbook, 'Remains,' due out next spring from IDW.
