Wake the Dead - Concept art for Steve Niles Frankenstein type film

Writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, Epilogue) gave ShockTillYouDrop.com a look at one of the conceptual pieces from the upcoming feature film adaptation of his graphic novel Wake the Dead.

"The screenplay, written by Jay Russell and Jim V. Hart is complete," Niles tells us. Russell is also directing for producer Charlie Lyons. "We recently met with Richard Taylor of WETA and they are set to go, and have even supplied us with early concept art by Gino Acevedo (above)."

Wake the Dead, a modern-day Frankenstein story, was published as a mini-series by IDW. Russell and Hart came aboard the project in May (first details).

"I just read the screenplay, and I can say without a doubt that the screenwriters knocked it out of the park," Niles enthuses. "The script captures the comic and goes way beyond. Honestly, I couldn't be happier. It's everything I imagined and more. Jay and Jim expanded the story beautifully, adding to both the haunting romance and the straightforward horror. I think fans are in for something special."
