Remember Brandon Routh? The same guy who donned Superman's blue tights in 'Superman Returns'? Well he's back and he's ready to play another comic book related film role. Routh will be starring in the film adaptation of Dylan Dog where he will be playing the leading role. The film will be titled
'Dead of Night,' which is close to receiving an 'R' rating from the MPAA. Routh expressed in an interview with MTV that he would really like to see the film version of this comic receive a PG-13 rating so that a wider audience will have the opportunity to see it.
“The comic property would probably be rated ‘R,’ we’re going for a PG-13 so more people can enjoy the film...It’s [not just] gore and horror, it’s a lot more straight action, with a bit of comedy.”
Have you guys ever read any of Tiziano Sclavi's comics? Are you looking forward to seeing this play out on the big screen?
