Guillermo Del Toro to Produce DC Comics Adaptation 'Dead Man'

Bloody Disgusting reports that Nikolaj Arcel (Island of Lost Souls ) is looking to direct Dead Man, a Crow-esque adaptation for Warner Bros. Pictures. Prolific multihyphenate Guillermo del Toro is set to produce. GDT is currently working on pre-pro for The Hobbit. How he has managed to fit another project onto his jam-packed production slate is anyone's guess.

The pic follows a a circus tightrope walker who is murdered and returns as a ghost with the ability to inhabit the bodies of others in order to find his killer. It is based on the DC character "Deadman" that first appeared in Strange Adventures #205 (October 1967).
