Created by Cole Haddon and MS Corley, The Strange Case of Mr Hyde sees Scotland Yard enlist the help of Henry Jekyll after a serial killer seemingly fuelled by the same serum that unleashed Mr Hyde begins terrorising London.
Skydance Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment and the Mark Gordon Company will produce the movie adaptation.
The original source material, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, was written by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson in 1886 and has been adapted hundreds of times for film, television, stage and radio.
