Screenwriter Albert Torres ("Henry Poole Is Here," "Akira") has come on board to pen a re-write of the film adaptation of Cole Haddon's 2011 graphic novel "The Strange Case of Hyde" at Dark Horse Entertainment, Skydance Productions and the Mark Gordon Company.
A pseudo-sequel to the classic Robert Louis Stevenson story, the action is set five years later with Dr. Jekyll in prison and allegedly rehabilitated.
Inspector Thomas Adye of Scotland Yard commissions Jekyll into hunting down a new terror, a monster that has been murdering prostitutes and appears to be the product of an improved version of the infamous Hyde serum.
Adding to the complications, it seems Jekyll isn't completely cured of Hyde either.
