SCHUMACHER TO WAKE THE DEAD
Freeze Dried Movies reports that a source at last week?s San Diego Comic-Con slipped them the news that Joel Schumacher will direct WAKE THE DEAD for Dimension. The project is based on the Steve Niles/IDW Publishing comic, a variation on FRANKENSTEIN in which a college student named Victor discovers the secret of reversing death, with the expected messy results. Schumacher has some experience with death-cheating youth, having previously directed THE LOST BOYS and FLATLINERS; X2?s Michael Dougherty is scripting the film. Meanwhile, IDW?s trade paperback collection of the five-issue DEAD miniseries debuted this month.
