With the success of the video games, and the general vibe of the story, I’m really surprised it took this long for Top Cow’s The Darkness series to get picked up for a movie deal.

At least that is what the LA Times is reporting.  We’ll know more at the San Diego Comic Con as Mandeville Films should announce the movie deal during one of the many panels scheduled for the show (our money is on the Top Cow panel).

The graphic novels center on a mobster named Jackie Estacado who discovers he has inherited a murderous power known as “the darkness” that allows him to summon creatures from another realm. Estacado must then find a way to tame the power while vanquishing his enemies within the crime family in which he operates.

There have been a number of stories over the last couple of weeks regarding comics being picked up by movie studios, and it doesn’t look like H’wood is tired of the genre yet.
