Russell and Hart to Wake the Dead

ON has learned that Jay Russell (Ladder 49, The Water Horse) will direct Wake the Dead, an adaptation of Steve Niles’ (“30 Days of Night”) modern-day Frankenstein graphic novel. James V. Hart (Sahara, Bram Stoker’s Dracula) will write the script.

In the IDW series, Niles introduces his readers to a young man named Victor who works to reverse death, even if it means using spare parts from some of his friends.
