BOOM! Studios' 'Day Men' Optioned by Universal

With the popularity of vampires lately, it should be no surprise when a vampire related property gets picked up for the big screen, especially when with Day Men's unique take on the mythology. 


"We're taking a very simple approach to the vampire mythos. Our vampires are more physical than they are mystical," Stelfreeze told CBR in April. "Vampires are like a metaphor for power, and that is what this story is about. Sure, there are fangs and blood but the story is really about the lust for power and control. Our main character, David, is at the epicenter of all these tidal forces. This story bears a stronger resemblance to 'Godfather' than it does to 'Dracula.'"

Combined with Universal's success with 2 Guns, an earlier movie optioned from Boom! that recently hit theaters, it's a no-brainer to return to the growing studio even if Day Men just launched.  If 2 Guns is any indication, it looks like Universal may treat the property right, it looks like they are looking for good stories more than already established properties to hold their tent up.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
