More Comic Book Adaptations In Development

Despite its latest comic book to film adaptation, Universal's "Cowboys & Aliens", budgeted at $163 million, earning a worldwide total gross of $174,822,325, comic book publishers Platinum Studios is intent on co-producing more comic book properties into films.

"...'Blood Nation' is a world war movie set in the future where the humans and the vampires have divided up the planet but not yet made peace with each other..."

"Nightfall" is with producer William Stuart:

"...when 'David Paxton' is sent to a tough Texas prison, he has no idea that it’s secretly run by vampires. The guards and warden prey on the inmates, confident that their victims can’t get away, and that no one would believe them if they did. Paxton’s sole hope of survival is an uneasy alliance with a ruthless killer named 'Robbart' -- and a desperate prison riot that is their only chance of escape..."
