Dead of Night Screenwriters Hired

Platinum Studios has hired “Sahara” screenwriters Joshua Oppenheimer and Tom Donnelly to write its upcoming comic book adaptation, Dead of Night.

Budgeted at $35 million, the film is based on the Italian comic series “Dylan Dog” and inspired by events in two “Dylan Dog” graphic novels.

The Hollywood Reporter says it’s not the first time that Platinum has worked with the writing duo. The studio had set up another “Dylan Dog” project at Dimension Films with Oppenheimer and Donnelly writing. It since has re-acquired the rights.
