Steve Niles’ Criminal Macabre Getting Closer…

Superhero Hype!’s sister horror site learned at the Rue Morgue Festival of Fear in Toronto that Steve Niles’ popular private investigator Cal McDonald, the star of a number of novels and comic books, might be getting a bit closer to hitting the big screen.

At a panel for 30 Days of Night: Blood Trails, Niles mentioned that his script went through two studios but it now has a director interested in tackling it. “I had a director approach me at San Diego [Comic-Con], he was there promoting another movie. Hopefully we’ll be announcing [his involvement] soon,” Niles said at the panel.
