Mr. Hyde To Be Recase As An Anti-Hero?

Skydance Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment, and producer Mark Gordon are teaming for a film version of Cole Haddon’s comic “The Strange Case of Hyde” reports Heat Vision

Haddon’s graphic novel take on Robert Louis Stevenson’s literary classic “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” plans to give the story a less horror, more anti-heroic take “by making the split personality the center of a Victorian-era action-adventure that sees him go head-to-head against a historical villain.”

Haddon will also adapt the screenplay. The announcement comes after two recent attempts to film Stevenson’s classic, one by Abel Ferrara and the other by Nicholas Winding Refn, fell apart.
