Dead Of Night trades directors

Last October we reported that Brandon Routh’s career was finally going to take a turn for the healthier after he signed on to the lead of Dead Of Night, adapted from Tiziano Sclavi’s comic book Dylan Dog. Snakes On A Plane’s David R Ellis was all set to direct and it was ploughing towards production.

Well, Routh’s luck didn’t change that much – it never quite got filming.

But now Kevin Munroe, who last helmed the TMNT ‘toon, has taken over the big chair for the story of a private investigator (Routh) drawn into the world of the undead. Variety is digging into the story .
