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 are weeks away from the return of the adventures of Sam and Dean WInchester. On Oct 7th. As well as Crowley and Castiel who have joined the cats this season. As we left the show Dean died and became a Demon, now what kind of demon he has become who knows. We have the 200 episode of the show coming up which is going to be a musical. Beyond that we don’t have many other details from season 10 most likely trying to keep the Demon Dean story line under wraps. I found out recently that Mark Shepard who plays Crowley will be at the RI Comic Con in November.
Season 9 just came on blu ray and dvd , contains a great detail view of the Men of Letters bunker going thru the various items in the bunker. This was introduced in Season 8 and acts like a new home for the boys after Bobbies place was destroyed by Dick Roman in Season 7. My favorite episode of this season is Dog Dean Afternoon where Dean gets the ability to talk to dogs and other animals its hilarious, The one episode that a lot of people had problems with guest started Felica Day as the Lesbian Hack Geek Charlie, It had a Wizard of Oz elements to it and honestly was not that bad.
Below is a video showing the then and now of the whole show
