It's been a very long time since we heard any concrete news on a "Darkness" movie. It was reported last July that Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman would be producing a big-screen adaptation of Top Cow's flagship antihero alongside the publisher's own Matt Hawkins and Marc Silvestri, as well as David Manpearl. Little to no news since then, sadly, though we did put forth our own Jackie Estacado casting suggestions not too long ago.
Today, Collider has the word on some significant progress. They're reporting that Regency is nearing a deal to obtain the feature film rights to "The Darkness," with all of those aforementioned names still on board — and with the notable addition of "Total Recall" director and "Underworld" mastermind Len Wiseman as producer to boot!
