Warner Bros go to hell as they plan Dante’s Inferno movie…

August 23rd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Would you like to travel to the ninth level of hell?

Warner Bros would, it seems. Deadline are reporting that the studio plans a big screen take on the first third of Dante Alighieri’s 14th century epic poem, The Divine Comedy from screenwriter Dwain Worrell, who scripted Walking the Dead – not The Walking Dead.

The poem begins on Easter weekend in the year 1300 and is divided in three parts: Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso. It tells the story of Danto whose love, Beatrice, dies and who is then guided by dead poet Virgil through the nine circles of Hell, where he sees the unspeakable torments endured by sinners.

I tis believed that the movie will see Dante try to save his love, even though in the original story Beatrice saves Dante.

This is not to be confused with Universal Pictures’ Dante’s Inferno movie, directed by Evil Dead‘s Fede Alvarez, based on the EA game of the same name.

So there you have it, Warners really are going to hell…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
