Len Wiseman Producing Comic Book Adaptation 'The Darkness'

While his films may be questionable in quality for the most part, there's no denying that their financial success have given “Underworld” helmer Len Wiseman some clout and respect among industry circles, and indeed, his expertise is being eyed to help bring a comic book to the big screen.

Collider has learned that the man behind “Live Free and Die Hard” and the upcoming “Total Recall” remake has been approached by Regency to produce an adaptation of the comic book “The Darkness,” along with “The Fighter” and “The Proposal” producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. The Top Cow comic series sets up the mythology with an ageless power called The Darkness. It’s a force that roots itself within a variety of male hosts on their 21st birthday -- allowing them to create and control anything they desire (including strange creatures, weapons, etc.). The current host of The Darkness is a former mob hitman named Jackie Estacado who is able to exert slight control over the force as he wrestles his sinister urge for evil-doing while becoming somewhat of a classic antihero in the works. The series has also been turned into a popular video game franchise with the second installment “The Darkness II” released this past February. Top Cow’s Marc Silvestri (a co-creator of the comic) and Matt Hawkins will be executive producing, perhaps providing some solace for those hoping the film keeps its same creative principles.

There’s no word on who they’re lining up as the lead or creative them behind this one, but we’d imagine that if Wiseman’s schedule has an opening, this certainly wouldn’t be out of the realm of his “Underworld”-era directorial sensibilities. But we’ll probably have more news on what’s next for him when he begins to hit the publicity rounds for his “Total Recall” remake that is set to be released on August 3rd. For now, check out the trailer for “The Darkness II” below for a look at what could be in store (it’s pretty much “The Crow” meets “Underworld”).
