Dylan Dog will become a tv series

Bonelli teams up with “Saw” director James Wan to co-produce the show

Dylan Dog will become a tv series Bonelli teams up with “Saw” director James Wan to co-produce the show

Dylan Dog is headed to the small screen thanks to James Wan’s Atomic Monster. The director's company teams up with Bonelli Entertainment, long-time comic book publisher, to co-produce an English-language TV series based on the character created 33 years ago by Tiziano Sclavi. Wan, who previously worked on the recent blockbuster Aquaman and, the Saw saga, Insidious and The Conjuring, seems to be the right person to adapt Sclavi's cult for the screen. The man said he’s a big fan of the paranormal investigator:

“Dylan Dog is truly one of my favorite comic books ever. I was first introduced to the Nightmare Investigator back in high school by my European friends. And though I didn’t understand the foreign text, I easily understood the story through the beautiful artwork, and its loving references to the horror genre. I’m excited to team with Sergio Bonelli Editore to bring this to life on screen.”

No further details about the series have yet been revealed: neither the network nor the cast. Fans wonder who will be the actor to play Dylan Dog, but there are still no hints. Everyone still remembers the great likeness between the detective and Rupert Everett who played him in Dellamorte Dellamore, a 1994 movie directed by Michele Soavi.  In fact, the performance of the English actor in the movie Another Country inspired the character of Dylan to Sclavi and his collaborator Claudio Villa.
