Back in 2001 Brandon Routh before he was he Atom and after he was Superman played Dylan Dog and I actually kind of liked the movie but…..lots of people did not…however look whats coming soon.
First, some info on the comics – Dylan Dog is a massively popular Italian horror comic, created by Tiziano Sclavi in 1986 (Sclavi would later write the script for an unofficial Dylan Dog tie-in – Dellamorte Dellamore, aka Cemetery Man).
Dylan Dog is a private investigator specializing in nightmares. He lives with his eccentric assistant, Groucho, and solves cases dealing with the paranormal.
Seeing as the copyright to Dylan Dog still lies in Hollywood (adaptation Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a film similar in name only to the popular comic and hated by fans), some of the characters had to be slightly altered; yet, the atmosphere and feel are kept as close as possible to the source material.
Kevin Kopacka produced, directed, scored, and edited the pilot episode, titled “Dream of the Living Dead” – which he co-wrote with fellow director Alex Bakshaev. Besides the titular character Dylan (renamed as “Dylan Dawn”), the pilot will feature alterations of other Dylan Dog characters such as Groucho, Inspektor Bloch, Madame Trelkovski, Jenkins, Morgana, and Xarabas.
After a fight with her husband, Corrado, Morgana’s world seems somehow different – cold, dark, and rotten. Trapped between reality and nightmare, she has no choice but to seek out “Nightmare Investigator” Dylan Dawn. But can Dylan save her from her fate, or is she forever caught in a maze of bad dreams?
“Dylan” stars Ford Everett as Dylan, Denise Ankel as Morgana, and Rainer Werner Fassbinder veteran Harry Baer as Inspektor Mahlow. The pilot is currently in post-production, but the rough edit has already been finished. It will have a run time of 40 minutes and will be released free for all online around April. Based on the reaction to the pilot, a 6-episode first season might get made (though at the moment it is unknown if for TV or based online).
The idea is to have a 6-episode first season. As with the comics, each episode will be different in style and atmosphere to the one before, but there will be an overarching story with Xarabas planned to appear in the season finale.
Expect it to be a mixture of the Dylan comics L’alba dei morti viventi and Morgana with nods to Italian classic horror movies such as Dellamorte Dellamore, Zombi, Demoni, and Burial Ground. It will be very atmospheric, artistic, and (hopefully) even scary but still with comedic elements. A full trailer will be released before the launch of the episode.
As a closing statement, I will say that this show is made for the fans and is in no way meant to be disrespectful to its source material. I hope you (especially the Italian fans!) will enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
We know who the cast is, there is not much to talk about with a film I have not seen yet. I’m very excited to see Michael Keaton playing Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture. I don’t understand how Hollywood has avoided casting a red head in Spider-Man for the second time. A REAL red head not a dye job blonde or burnette. Where is the ginger love????
I may be a horror host and love all things Horror…..but Star Wars and Spider-Man top that horror list any day of the week. It goes all the way back to my childhood. This was just released online the poster for Spider-Man Homecoming. The picture was snagged by Frightrags.
I’m really looking forward to this, his performance in Captain America Civil War was ….AMAZING
Boston Comic Con is coming up and I thought this be a great time to do a comic vinyl review.
Love or hate the movie it had a really great score. Hans Zimmer can make some great music or its music we have heard over and over before. For me I think this score really helps the film. You can see him trying new music ques that we have heard a little of in the Man of Steel movie but really trying to separate the score from the Dark Night Trilogy. His music is REALLY going to be your own opinion. I know a lot of people who think his over use of strings sucks. One song in particular I love is what’s become known as Wonder Woman’s theme. It’s a rock roaring kick ass piece of music that truly captures how fucking awesome Gal Gadot is as the the Warrior Princess.
Do I wish BvS had some music from John Williams or Danny Elfman YES of course who do a net but those are differant films in other franchises. With the vinyl set you get 3 records a poster and a digital copy of the soundtrack for your traveling devises.
One of the vinyl have this engraved image of Batman and Superman and it looks fantastic. Problem is I’m not an expert photographer and could only capture a glimpse of this cool image.
Tonight on the show we have Artist Derek Rook on with us to talk about his comic Book and the history behind it the pitfalls and the ups and downs of being an independent creator. Some music but mostly a long conversation stay tuned and check it out.
