ComingSoon.net shares an intriguing press release from the folks at Platinum Studios, and it seems that those crazy Pang brothers will be helming an English-language thriller entitled "The Darkness" — and there will be video game tie-ins.

"Platinum Studios, an entertainment company that controls the world’s largest independent library of comic book characters, and Blue Star Pictures have inked a deal with directors Danny and Oxide Pang to direct the upcoming feature film, "The Darkness," based on the popular comic book published by Top Cow Productions, Inc. Platinum Studios will finance 50 percent of the production. Platinum, Blue Star and the Pang Brothers are jointly looking for a writer.

"The Darkness" is also currently being produced as a video game for the next generation systems and is one of the only comic book adaptations currently announced for the new Xbox 360. Published by Majesco Entertainment, the video game is being developed by Starbreeze, creators of the critically acclaimed "The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay." "The Darkness" game is scheduled to be released early 2007.

Danny and Oxide Pang, twin brothers best known for their acclaimed action movie "Bangkok Dangerous" and the horror classic, "The Eye," recently finished another Blue Star feature, "The Messengers," starring Dylan McDermott, John Corbett, and Penelope Ann Miller, for Mandate Pictures and Sony/Columbia.

In The Darkness, mafia hitman Jackie Estacado discovers he is the heir to a formidable mystical force called the Darkness and he is the only one who can stop a supernatural power bent on enslaving humanity.

"The Pang brothers’ unique horror style suits this project very well," said Platinum Studios chairman, Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. "This is an opportunity to develop one of Platinum’s many horror-genre properties with two of the best horror-directors available."

Platinum Studios will finance half of The Darkness, which is at Miramax with a progress to production clause through January 2006."
