“We are thrilled with the opportunity to bring this amazing character to screen in a big way,” said Mark B. Newbauer. “Nick Barucci, founder and CEO of the prolific Dynamite Comics, is an incredible visionary with an eye for story, and a talent for integration into the zeitgeist. He and everyone at Dynamite have resurrected this character in a significant way over the past decade and this latest run with Christopher Priest feels like it’s just the beginning of her next fifty years and beyond.”
He continued: “Vampirella has become (and as of 2021 remains) the longest-running English-language vampire comic book of all time, its latest run, helmed by Christopher Priest (Black Panther), is its most successful yet, with more issues sold in its 50th anniversary than any previous year and it continues to gain momentum in popularity as new readers discover Vampirella’s timely storyline.”
Created by Forrest J. Ackerman of Famous Monsters of Filmland and Trina Robbins, the character debuted in Vampirella #1 in 1969.
Vampirella was previously brought to the screen in 1996 with Talisa Soto as the titular character. The Who’s Roger Daltrey played her nemesis.
