Dark Horse & Universal Agree to Multiyear Deal

Dark Horse Entertainment and Universal Pictures announced on Friday that they have agreed to a multi-year deal that will bring more comic films to the big screen. Universal is already staking a large amount of their summer profits on the Dark Horse film Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson had this to say about the partnership with Universal:

“We’ve worked with many studios and have had several great experiences,
but we are particularly happy to be joining forces with Universal
Pictures in this deal. We feel a real connection with their vision and
the energy and creativity they bring to developing our properties. We
are also excited by the option that we’ll have to independently produce
our own material and distribute it through Universal; their flexibility
in this collaboration is what we were looking for, and we’re glad we
found it.”

So far, Universal has done a bang-up job with the Hellboy license. What Dark Horse property would you next like to see adapted into a feature film? Martha Washington? Grendel? Tank Girl II?
