Animated Movie of the Dark Knight Returns in Development


Bleeding Cool has the scoop that work has begun on an animated adaptation of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson’s The Dark Knight Returns!

Bleeding Cool have heard from multiple sources (enough with the multiples already) that work is underway on a movie adaptation of Frank Miller and Klaus Janson‘s classic The Dark Knight Returns. As you might have guessed, however, this is to be an animated adaptation, much like the recent All Star Superman or in-the-works Year One.

Fittingly, Year One will come along first, but DKR is already in the early stages of development. According to our sources, several veterans of Batman toons past will be on the crew list, though we’re still trying to confirm who is writing and directing the film.

More details as they emerge!
