Dark Horse plans Universal expansion

The big news coming out the Dark Horse Comics camp is that they've got themselves a moving pictures deal. And that deal is with Universal Pictures. The three year production and distribution agreement ensures that Dark Horse properties have a movie studio representing them, so I suppose this means we can see tons of new material from Dark Horse potentially hitting the big screen. Mike Richardson, founder and CEO of Dark Horse Comics, was pretty stoked about the deal. "We've worked with many studios and have had several great experiences, but we are particularly happy to be joining forces with Universal Pictures in this deal. We feel a real connection with their vision and the energy and creativity they bring to developing our properties. We are also excited by the option that we'll have to independently produce our own material and distribute it through Universal; their flexibility in this collaboration is what we were looking for, and we're glad we found it."
