DiGilio scripting ‘Damned’

Parkes, MacDonald to produce film

DreamWorks has tapped David DiGilio to adapt the Oni Press graphic novel “The Damned,” by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing via their DreamWorks-based shingle.

Described as horror-noir, “Damned” follows a Los Angeles detective who discovers that a new gang with ties to the supernatural has infiltrated the city.

Eric Gitter is also producing via his Closed on Mondays Entertainment, the film production arm of Oni Press Mark. Peter Schwerin will exec produce.

DreamWorks recently snapped up Oni Press’ upcoming graphic novel “The Return of King Doug” for Ben Stiller to produce and potentially topline.

DiGilio wrote “Eight Below” for Disney and was creator of ABC series “The Traveler.”

He is repped by UTA, Stephen Crawford at Luber/Roklin and attorney Karl Austen.
