DreamWorks has hired David DiGilio (Eight Below, ABC’s “The Traveler”) to adapt the Oni Press graphic novel “The Damned,” by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, reports Variety.
Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing via their DreamWorks-based company.
Described as horror-noir, “Damned” follows a Los Angeles detective who discovers that a new gang with ties to the supernatural has infiltrated the city.
Eric Gitter is also producing via his Closed on Mondays Entertainment, the film production arm of Oni Press Mark. Peter Schwerin will executive produce.
DreamWorks recently snapped up Oni Press’ upcoming graphic novel “The Return of King Doug” for Ben Stiller to produce and potentially topline.
DiGilio wrote “Eight Below” for Disney and was creator of ABC series “The Traveler.”
