Dark Horse Comic JEKYLL & HYDE To Become Movie
The upcoming comic from Dark Horse entitled ‘The Strange Case of Hyde’ is heading for the big screen. Skydance Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment, and producer Mark Gordon are all teaming up to adapt the comic, which was written by Cole Haddon, for the big screen.
Rather than telling the same old Jekyll & Hyde story over again, the film will see the alter ego Hyde the center of a Victorian-era adventure film. In the fresh take on an old story, Hyde will face off against a historical villain. Jekyll & Hyde first appeared in Robert Louis Stevenson”s 1886 novella, and the story has been retold repeatedly in books, on the big screen, and in theaters. The comic itself will debut this week at Comic-Con in San Diego, California.
Comic writer Haddon is a fresh face on the scene who recently wrote ‘Thieves of Baghdad’ for Warner Bros. Skydance Productions is gearing up, along with Paramount, for ‘Mission Impossible 4,’ while Darkhorse Entertainment just set up ‘3 Story’ at Warner. Gordon”s last action came while executive producing ‘2012.’
