Deadman

From Variety

Danish helmer Nikolaj Arcel is on tap to bring "Deadman" to life for Warner Bros. with Guillermo del Toro, Angry Films' Don Murphy and Murphy's partner Susan Montford producing the DC Comics adaptation.

Deadman is the ghost of a murdered circus acrobat who has the power to possess the living in order to seek out his killer as well as to help the innocent. The character first appeared in 1967 and was created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Carmine Infantino.

Warner Bros. set up the project three years ago as a potential directing vehicle for del Toro, with Gary Dauberman penning the adaptation (Daily Variety, Dec. 4, 2006).

Hmm. I've had my first introduction to him through the Batman tie-in for Blackest Night and through Wednesday Comics recently, I'd like to see him get a film, if only to see more of him.

I doubt this will see fruition. Del Toro is becoming genre cinema's Tarantino. He's got as lot of concepts out there for things he wants to work on, but none of them are in the works.

I think it might work. He's busy doing The Hobbit for another 4 years, or so, but after that it might work. (especially since a lot more DC films will be out by then)
