Smallville news -- and much more!!!


Sony Pictures has released the first image and an official description of 30 Days of Night, the live-action adaptation of the IDW Publishing comic book by Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith.

The film stars Josh Hartnett, Melissa George, Danny Huston and Ben Foster. It was directed by David Slade from a screenplay by Niles, Stuart Beattie and Brian Nelson.

Here's how Sony describes the movie:

"Producer Sam Raimi brings audiences the terrifying thriller 30 Days of Night, set in the isolated town of Barrow, Alaska, in the extreme northern hemisphere, which is plunged into complete darkness annually for an entire month. When most of the inhabitants head south for the winter, a mysterious group of strangers appear: bloodthirsty vampires, ready to take advantage of the uninterrupted darkness to feed on the town's residents. As the night wears on, Barrow's Sheriff Eben (Hartnett), his estranged wife Stella (George) and an ever-shrinking group of survivors must do anything they can to last until daylight."

The film is scheduled for an Oct. 19 release.

Devilšs Due Publishing on Thursday announced it has signed an agreement with Xombie, Inc. to bring Xombie, an online flash cartoon, to comic books.

Xombie, a downloadable web series created by James Farr, boasting more than 13 million downloads, tells the story of a variant zombie (called "Xombies," capable of thinking and feeling) named Dirge. Dirge discovers a young human girl named Zoe who suffers from amnesia, and, as his last good act before becoming dust on the floor of this ruined, zombie-filled world, begins a dangerous journey to return Zoe to the safety of her loved ones. Along the way, Dirge and friends must survive the assaults of zombies of all shapes and sizes.

"Devil's Due has been on the lookout for new, unique properties that not only appeal to the comic collector crowd, but fans outside of the medium as well," said Devil's Due president Josh Blaylock. "With Xombie we have found the perfect mix of comics, animation, horror, and sci-fi with a huge built in fan-base."

"It's about time we 'livened up' the zombie genre and started rooting for the dead guys instead," Farr said. "And who better to bring the first zombie hero to 'life' than Devil's Due, who make up the majority of my comic collection these days!"

Devil's Due said Xombie would be released as a limited series but did not offer a release date.
