Vampirella is returning to the screen with new feature film adaptation

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that Mike The Pike Productions and its subsidiary Arowana Media Holdings have acquired the worldwide film, television and digital media rights to the iconic comic book character Vampirella and are working on a feature film adaptation.

“We are thrilled with the opportunity to bring this amazing character to screen in a big way,” said MIKP CEO and Producer 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 50 years and beyond.”

“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,” he continued.

Created by Forrest J Ackerman and Trina Robbins and making her debut in Vampirella #1 in 1969, the Daughter of Drakulon has remained a comic book mainstay ever since, passing through several publishers before arriving at Dynamite Entertainment in 2010. A feature film adaptation was previously released in 1996, with Talisa Soto as Vampirella.

The new movie is being produced by Mark Newbauer of Mike The Pike and Nick Barrucci and Juan Collado of Dynamite Entertainment, while plans are also afoot for subsequent television TV adaptations based on characters from within the Vampirella universe.
