Word coming out of Comic-Con is that Top Cow's popular coming title THE DARKNESS is getting another chance to come to the big screen. Adaptations have been attempted in the past but fell through. Hopefully this one will work out.

This time, Mandeville Films (THE FIGHTER) has pacted with Top Cow to develop the picture. Mandeville's David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce, while the company's David Manpearl and Top Cow's Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins will executive produce.

The comic book series was created by Marc Silvestri, Garth Ennis and David Wohl in 1996 and has since yielded over 115 books and sold 25 million copies worldwide, as well as spawning a video game.

THE DARKNESS center on a mobster named Jackie Estacado who discovers he has inherited a murderous power known as "the darkness" that allows him to summon creatures from another realm. Estacado must then find a way to tame the power while vanquishing his enemies within the crime family in which he operates.
