Universal Adapts Niles’ “Criminal Macabre”

Universal Pictures has acquired film rights to the graphic novel mini-series “Criminal Macabre” from Dark Horse Entertainment says Variety.

The story centers around a supernatural detective who doubles as hitman, taking out all the vampires, ghosts and other unsavory monsters who live among humans, hiding in the shadows by day and emerging at night.

“30 Days of Night” creator Steve Niles penned the comic and Kyle Ward has been set to adapt the script. Neal Moritz and Mike Richardson will produce.
