It’s that time again, it’s time for another graphic novel/comic book adaptation to hit the big screen. According to Deadline, the latest property to catch the eye of Hollywood is Nightfall. a novel that centers on two things we love — vampires and prison! Saw director and co-creator James Wan plans on bringing it to a theater near you.
The story for Nightfall centers on “a man sentenced to time in a prison run by vampires.” Talk about the inmates running the asylum. “The graphic novel was published in 2007 and written and created by Scott O. Brown with art by Ferran Xalabarder. Wan will oversee the development of a script.”
“The minute I heard the concept, I was in, Wan said. “Reading the graphic novel cemented that. Like Saw, it’s a simple concept that, if executed properly, will be so cool.”
Speaking of Saw can he get rid of it please? There’s been word that the upcoming 3D film will be the last and we hope that’s the case. The entire franchise is a true representation of what happens when a good idea gets beaten into the ground. Therefore, if Nightfall can divert attention away from that series we’re all for it.
What do you think of Nightfall? Have you read the graphic novel?
