How many of you have seen Cemetery Man, aka Dellamorte Dellamore? If you haven’t, you should. And if you have, you’ll be happy to know that Dead Of Night, based on the same Dylan Dog comics that were a large inspiration for Dellamorte, has finally begun production in New Orleans. Gilbert Adler (Demon Knight) has come on board to produce. Greg Cannom, who just won an Oscar for Benjamin Button, but is better known to horror fans for his incredible (and also Oscar winning) makeup on 1992’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula, has also joined the production, which stars Brandon Routh. Read on for a few more details…
Producer Gilbert Adler is sinking his teeth into the horror film “Dead of Night,” which starts production today in New Orleans. And DRAC Studios, whose creative director, Greg Cannom, won the makeup Oscar for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” has come on to handle makeup effects.
Hyde Park Group and Platinum Studios are producing the vampire/werewolf/zombie flick that stars Brandon Routh.
Adapted from the top-selling 1986 Italian comic book series “Dylan Dog,” created by Tiziano Sclavi, “Dead” stars Routh as a private investigator who stumbles onto the world of the undead. Kevin Munroe (“TMNT”) is directing a screenplay by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly (“Sahara,” “Conan the Barbarian”), who moved the action from the U.K. to the deep bayou of Louisiana.
