Max Landis to Adapt Graphic Novel DIRK GENTLY

Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis is taking on a new project to script. He is teaming up with IWD to adapt the graphic novel Dirk Gently for the small screen. 

The character was created in 1991 by Douglas Adams in his graphic novel Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency and The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. The story revolves around a holistic detective who investigates cases involving the supernatural.

Landis most recently wrote films such as Frankenstein with with Daniel Radcliffe and American Ultra with Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. This will be the second time that Dirk Gently has been adapted for TV. It was also brought to life as a British TV series on BBC Four from 2010-12. The photos used in this post are from that series.

There's a lot of comic book characters being adapted for the small screen these days, and this sounds like it could be a good one due to its subject matter. I'm a big fan of the supernatural stuff.
