Munroe & Routh Officially on Dylan Dog

Published 6 years ago by

dylan dog Munroe & Routh Officially on Dylan DogI’m pretty sure most people don’t know who the hell Dylan Dog is compared to James Bond. But they might know more soon enough.

According to our buddies at Bloody-Disgusting, Kevin Munroe (the director behind the surprisingly-solid TMNT) has agreed to helm a film adaptation of the Italian horror comic.

And they have also reiterated that Superman himself, Brandon Routh, has officially signed on to portray the nightmare investigator.


David R. Ellis (who helmed the immortal classic Snakes on a Plane) was previously on-board to direct. But he’s apparently too busy with Final Destination 4 at the moment.

This also means that Munroe’s off Gatchaman aka G-Force aka Battle of the Planets for Warner Brothers and the Weinstein Company.

I gotta say it’s awesome to hear that Routh will be headlining another “big” film before the Superman Returns sequel Man of Steel next year; especially after how his part was sadly cut from The Informers.

If this all works out, he could find himself headlining two franchises concurrently.

  1. This sounds very cool. I don’t know anything about this but at least its not a reboot or another remake…..

    And also what’s this about a G_force Battle of the Planets film. (Need to read more about that please!!!!!). Are we talking live action. ??

  2. this sounds intruiging
    and kudos to routh for finding another good character without giving up on Supes .

  3. This could be cool as Hell…or ass. Time will ultimately tell.

    Again, I’m just happy to see Routh starring in a studio film before the SUPERMAN sequel next year after his situation with THE INFORMERS.

    For those who don’t know what I’m referring to, Routh was signed to play the lead vampire in said film (i.e. an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ novel).

    But for reasons that haven’t been explained, his role (along with ALL the supernatural elements of the book) was cut.

    And before anyone asks, there wasn’t a frame of film shot. So it wasn’t because “he sucked” or anything like that.

  4. Awesome news! Routh puts a lot of effort into his study of the character, so I think Dylan Dog will fit him fine. As for being cut from ‘The Informers’ movie, the studio said it was because they’re taking out all the supernatural influence and trying to go with just the grittiness of the book.
