DreamWorks Brewing Pair of New Projects


DreamWorks Pictures is adapting two Oni Press' comic book series of "The Damned" and "Courtney Crumrin" for the big screen.

Seems quite ambitious in expanding its future film slate, DreamWorks Pictures has added not only one but two more film projects onto the plate, both reportedly being based on Oni Press' comic book series.

The first has been announced to be "The Damned", which will be an adaptation of a horror-noir series by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt. Intended to be a gangster thriller with a supernatural twist, pic revolves around two rival gangs who must join forces when a pack of demons arrive in their city.

Meanwhile, the second one, titled "Courtney Crumrin" just like the original version, an ongoing series written and illustrated by Ted Naifeh, will focus on a misfit who moves with her social-climbing parents into her uncle's spooky mansion to unexpectedly find magic in the house's library.

Set to produce both flicks are Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald with Peter Schwerin serving as executive producer while Lisa Gitter, Steven V. Scavelli, and Joe Nozemack are all co-producing. A husband-and-wife team, Parkes and McDonald have long collaborated in producing film features, some of them include "Catch Me If You Can", "The Terminal", "Just Like Heaven", and the upcoming "Sweeney Todd."
