Screenwriter Albert Torres to Pen ‘The Strange Case of Hyde’

There is a film adaptation of the Dark Horse graphic novel, The Strange Case of Hyde on the horizon which will be re-written by Albert Torres and produced by Dark Horse Entertainment. You may have heard Torres’ name pop up before as he has penned the script for Apian Way’s Akira adaptation.

“’The Strange Case of Hyde’ follow Dr. Jekyll, after he is allegedly rehabilitated, and released from prison to help hunt a new monster who appears to be using an improved version of the infamous Hyde serum.

The classic tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde first appeared in a novella by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886. Growing up I’ve always been a huge fan of the character of Dr. Jekyll because I love the idea of a person being both good and evil and what better of a portrayal of that than Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. There have been countless versions of the character over the many years since he was introduced so I’m excited to see where Torres takes the classic character. Unfortunately, I’m completely clueless to how good the graphic novel is and what kind of portrayal it is of Dr. Jekyll but I’m really hoping for a more classic approach to the character than what we’ve seen in more recent years.

Have any of you read the graphic novel? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
