Del Toro to Bring "Deadman" to Life Onscreen

by | July 20, 2006 | Comments

Fan favorite Guillermo del Toro will be adapting DC’s offbeat anti-hero "Deadman" for the silver screen. I don’t know anything about this particular comics character, but based on the synopsis I just read, del Toro seems perfect for the gig.

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Guillermo del Toro is teaming up with Don Murphy‘s Angry Films to bring cult DC Comics superhero "Deadman" to the big screen.

Deadman is the ghost of a circus acrobat named Boston Brand, who was murdered during a trapeze performance. His spirit was granted the power by a Hindu goddess to possess any living being in order to find his killer. In the ensuing search, Brand finds himself obliged to help others. The hero was created in 1967 by Arnold Drake and Carmine Infantino and is known for a run of issues by artist Neal Adams."

Cool.
