Comic Book Resources caught up with Platinum Studios’ Scott Rosenberg who revealed a bit more about The Darkness, based on the comic book and to be directed by Danny and Oxide Pang:
When I first read [The Darkness], it dawned on me how to start the movie in a way that will get an audience (that hasn’t read the comics) to like Jackie,” explained Rosenberg. “Were going to focus first on his life in the orphanage: how rough it was, how it was that he was adopted, and the betrayal he felt when he found everything out (as an adult). The other thing that got me was his feelings for the girl. It seemed real.”
