Eliza Dushku & David S. Goyer team to develop Glenn Cook's The Black Company

Horror hottie and WRONG TURN star, Eliza Dushku’s Boston Diva Productions has optioned the ten-book epic action fantasy series, THE BLACK COMPANY by Glenn Cook, and IM Global Television is developing the fantasy series along with David S. Goyer  (BLADE, DARK CITY).

Dushku will play the very pivotal role of the dark sorceress, “The Lady”, and David S. Goyer will executive produce. 

Eliza Dushku on Glen Cook's THE BLACK COMPANY:

“THE BLACK COMPANY is vast in scope yet remains fundamentally relevant through the morally ambiguous choices it presents at every turn. We are excited to bring Glen Cook's classic story to life with Mark and David, luminaries in the cinematic pursuit of science fiction and epic fantasy, who will inevitably assemble poignant characters embroiled in jaw-dropping action."


The Black Company, an elite mercenary unit that carries out the often nefarious deeds of the highest bidder across a Tolkeinesque landscape.  When these hard-bitten men discover the prophecy that the embodiment of good has been reborn, they must re-examine their loyalties.  “The Lady”, who rules over the Northern Empire, uses the Black Company to further her domination of a power structure rife with usurpers.  

Dushku's company has also optioned the rights to the forthcoming book in the series, Port of Shadows.

We'll keep you guys up to date on THE BLACK COMPANY as there is expected to be further casting announced in the next few weeks.
