Variety is rumoring that Danish director Nikolaj Arcel is onboard to direct a "Deadman" movie based on the DC series of the same name. Arcel's films include "King's Game" and "Island or Lost Souls." Beloved Guillermo del Roro and Susan Montford are said to be producing.
"Deadman is the ghost of a murdered circus acrobat who has the power to possess the living in order to seek out his killer as well as to help the innocent. The character first appeared in 1967 and was created by writer Arnold Drake and artist Carmine Infantino."
