Universal Pictures Acquires Criminal Macabre

Universal Pictures has acquired “Criminal Macabre,” the Dark Horse Entertainment comic book miniseries created by Steve Niles. Variety says that Kyle Ward has been set to write the script.

The story centers around a supernatural detective who doubles as hitman, taking out all the vampires, ghosts and other unsavory monsters who live among humans, hiding in the shadows by day and emerging at night.

Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson will produce with Neal Moritz and his Original Film.
