Universal Picks a Dark Horse for Comics Deal


Universal Studios and Dark Horse Comics announced a deal Friday giving the movie studio access to every one of the publisher's original comics franchises.

The partnership gives Universal the green light to develop titles like Grendel, End League, Dead Rider and Goon into movies.

But, Dark Horse's franchise pacts with other major titles (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Conan) are off limits, as the rites obviously stick with the original creators.

There's no word yet on which Dark Horse title will be first to reach the big screen.
