David Goyer is one very busy man.

The writer/director — whose previous credits include the Blade movies, Batman Begins, and The Invisible — already had a list of upcoming projects that included directing Magneto and helping with Doug Liman‘s Jumper. Now, according to a report posted at Variety last week, he’s signed on to direct the film adaptation of Baltimore, of the Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire, an illustrated novel by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden.

Mignola, the creator of Hellboy, did conceptual artwork for Bram Stoker’s Dracula and worked with Goyer on Blade 2, while Golden, whose previous novels include “The Myth Hunters” and “Wildwood Road,” has multiple films in development. The duo will write the screenplay. The Baltimore synopsis, from the article:

Just-published by Bantam, the graphic novel tells the story of the awakening of supreme evil on Earth. Lord Henry Baltimore is bitten by a demonic vampire bat on a WWI battlefield. The plague destroys his family, and Baltimore creates a team to hunt and fight the Red King, the embodiment of all evil.

The Variety report goes on to note that optioning Baltimore fits Regency’s “new mandate to make films appealing to a young male demographic,” and lists the comic-book adaptation Virulents and an action thriller titled The Darkest Hour as other projects in development.
