Wednesday, 20th July 2011 21:05 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Mandeville Films, the Walt Disney-affiliated production company behind The Fighter, will be developing a film based on Top Cow’s graphic novel, The Darkness. The news was confirmed at Comic-Con today to the L.A. Times by a spokesperson for Mandeville, who said David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce, while David Manpearl and Top Cow’s Marc Silvestri and Matt Hawkins will be the executive producers. The firm and Top Cow previously brokered deals for graphic novels Alib and Crosshair. Meanwhile, the Darkness II game has been moved into 2012, as we’ve previously reported.

    Wow, the title really scared me. For a second there I thought David O Russel and Mark Wahlberg were involved. That way the film would have been about a handsome middle aged Mark and his uncle who are normal italians by day but at night are a secret society aiming to rid the world of all kinds of lamps and light sources.
