Variety announced that ultra-busy director Guillermo del Toro and co-writer Chuck Hogan are collaborating on a vampire trilogy where they "trace the roots of the vampiric race back to its Old Testament origins." Volume one, The Strain, published by William Morrow next summer, details an invasion of New York City by a vampiric virus. Variety notes here and also here just how busy del Toro is between now and 2017, what with helming the two-film The Hobbit adaptation, remaking Frankenstein, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Slaughterhouse-Five, and adapting the Dan Simmons novel Drood.
Meanwhile, Comic Book Resources reports that DC Comics canceled its Minx graphic novel imprint. Some solicited or greenlit projects will still see publication, while others will not -- but may resurface at sister imprint Vertigo.
