So sue me, but I’m a big fan of director David R. Ellis, who wowed with “Final Destination 2″, for my money the best of the “Destination” films. The man has an incredible eye for mayhem choreography, something he continued in “Snakes on a Plane”, another favorite guilty pleasure. Ellis’ latest will be the horror movie “Dead of Night”, which will star “Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh. The movie will be based on the horror comic book series “Dylan Dog,” created by Tiziano Sclavi, from a screenplay by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly.
“Dead Of Night” follows private investigators Derek Donovan and Marcus Adams as they discover that the dead, Some good, Some bad live among us here on earth.
They are drawn into the world of the walking dead especially when Marcus himself becomes a zombie.
Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) will play the lead role in “Dead of Night”.
The dead walks again in 2008.
