Fox To Develop Live Action The Spectre TV Show For DC Comics!

Brandon Camp will pen a script for a live action adaptation of The Spectre for DC Comics, with Fox and Warner Bros. producing the show alongside Gran Torino producer Bill Gerber...

Deadline report that Fox and DC Comics are moving ahead on an adaptation of The Spectre. Here is an excerpt from their report with all of the relevant details. In case you didn't already know, The Spectre is a supernatural being of nigh-unlimited might whose mission on Earth is to bring the wrath of God upon evil men. He is bound to a human host (a soul of a dead man) with Crispus Allen being its current incarnation.

Fox has bought The Spectre, a drama series project based on the DC Comics superhero character co-created by Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel and Bernard Baily. Brandon Camp (John Doe) will write the adaptation and executive produce with feature producer Bill Gerber (Gran Torino). The Spectre, which has received a script commitment, centers on a former cop serving time in afterlife limbo who hunts down earthly criminals on behalf of the dead — and mortals soon to be dead, if ultimate justice is not served. DC Entertainment’s sister TV studio Warner Bros. TV will produce with Gerber Pictures. The Spectre character first appeared in an 1940 issue of DC’s More Fun Comics. Since then, he has been featured in a number of other DC titles and has headlined his own comic book series. Camp was introduced to The Spectre property by DC Comics’ chief creative officer Geoff Johns.

What do you guys make of this? The last show Fox developed for DC was Human Target, and while it gained a fairly devoted fan base, it was ultimately cancelled. So, what about The Spectre? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!
