Ben Stiller has signed to produce The Return of King Doug, an adaptation of the title from Oni Press.

Written by Greg Erb and Jason Oremland, “King” centers on a man who must return to the fantasy world which he abandoned 30 years earlier. Erb and Oremland will also write the screenplay.

At this time Stiller is only signed to producer, but he may also take up the title role of Doug. Two other Oni Press titles; “Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things” and “The Damned”, were also picked up by Dreamworks Studios.
