Dead Of Night Movie Keeps The Suit And The Wheels

Looks like Brandon Routh isn't going to be shedding the color red just yet.Tthe producers of Dead Of Night filled us in on some details on their adaptation of Tiziano Sclavi's graphic novel.

Ashok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello paused for a moment while doing press for their upcoming picture Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, to talk about their up-and-coming projects, including Dead Of Night, starring Brandon Routh as Dylan Dog.

Ashok Amritraj: We have a movie called Dead of Night which starts shooting in April with Brandon Routh. Kevin Munroe, who did Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is directing it. That shoots in New Orleans.

Patrick Aiello: Brandon's character is like a Jack Gittes from Chinatown, who's a detective, a private investigator for the underworld, in the sense that he is investigating werewolves, zombies and vampires. In the spirit of Lost Boys, so we're not confused.

Ashok Amritraj: It's a best selling comic book from Italy called Dylan Dog. It's very, very popular. Platinum Comics are our partners on it.

Any other cast?

Ashok Amritraj: Not yet, not yet. We're just casting.

How close visually are you going?

Ashok Amritraj: We're going to be pretty, pretty close. It's going to have that look to it.

The famous suit?

Ashok Amritraj: Yeah.

Patrick Aiello: And car.

Well that's promising, I'm not sure how this will translate but I'm optimistic with the New Orleans shooting. Do you guys think Routh can step in for Dog, and do we trust him after Superman?
