DIMENSION DOING ANOTHER DARKNESS
Variety reports that Dimension Films has picked up the movie rights to Platinum Studio?s comic THE DARKNESS. The title, published through Platinum?s recently acquired Top Cow label, is about a 21-year-old former assassin who inherits 'the darkness,' a supernatural power that has been passed down through his family. Dimension is pitching the upcoming film as being in the vein of THE CROW, though there?s no word as to whether the studio will change the title to avoid associations with Jaume Balaguer?DARKNESS, which it releases December 25. Meanwhile, the Majesco company is currently developing a video game based on the comic.
