Universal Taps Dan Harris for Dante's Inferno
It was late last year when we first learned that Universal had nabbed the rights to the upcoming Electronics Arts video game version of Dante's Inferno. And now word has come down via Variety that the person who will be writing the live-action film is Dan Harris (X2, Superman Returns).
According to the trade, Strike Entertainment's Mark Abraham and Eric Newman are producing in conjunction with EA Entertainment. EA veep Patrick O'Brien and game creator Jonathan Knight are also involved in the development of the film.
Harris is no stranger to the depths of hell he'll be visiting in the course of adapting Dante's Inferno. He's currently involved with a project called I, Lucifer as both director and co-writer, in which the devil gets one last chance at redemption in the body of a suicidal writer.

I'm always interested in this jumping the gun strategy on film adaptations. There have been large amount of movies being developed for comics, books, and games that aren't even out yet. They did the same thing with Kane & Lynch, when surprise surprise, the game sucked. Shouldn't they at least wait to see if the game is a hit?

Not to be trite, but "if you snooze you lose." If you wait to see if it's a hit, someone else will have bought it by then. Unfortunately, that's how the game is played in Hollywood.

it's kinda like how studios were looking to "Cowboys and Aliens" and "I, Frankenstein" recently. Based on comic books that haven't been released yet. If you read into it, these are titles that were designed to be greenlit into movies, not as a legit comic book series.

Hmmm, indeed. Do you have a link, please? Could this be Superman related in some way?

I need it as proof. Otherwise people might think that I'm just making it up.

Oh, and thank you very much.

So, what could this mean? *sigh*

I think one announcement has to do with his movie "Trick 'r Treat." In fact, both announcements might be related to that movie for all we know. However, it is the phrase "Keep Watching the Skies" that makes me wonder if one of the announcements might be Superman-related.

I've talked a fair bit with Mike (I now a few others on here have as well) and I can tell you, his hints are quite often just him being playful because he is ALWAYS aware of the Superman fans. He sits back and shakes his head sometimes at the 1000 messages he receives about the status of a sequel even now.

I remember Dan Harris also having the same problems. The last sequel script idea he had was more bold, removing Lex as an underground criminal, and turning him into the President. I also liked that both writers wanted Brainiac in some fashion.

Well then, pardon my polish, but doesn't that make him ...

... well, a bit of a d**k head?

If a grown man, that's no longer working on any future superman production sits around in his bedroom making up blog titles just to mess around with the fans ... then he's extremely sad.

What a loser.

That is ofcourse, assuming your theory is correct. If it is in fact about superman, then no one will be more pleased than me believe me.
