DELILAH DIRK: Disney Eyes Cinematic Adaptation

Delilah Dirk

Disney is interested in making a film version of Delilah Dirk. The studio wishes to adapt the popular web comic series from writer and artist Tony Cliff for the big screen.

Seeking to bring the “International Mistress of Swordsmanship” to life, Disney is ready to produce a movie based on Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, the first story arc in the series’ narrative. The book, part of which can be read for free on the series’ site, was followed by another novel entitled Delilah Dirk and the King’s Shilling. It is unknown if Disney has also acquired the rights to adapting the second book.

Known amongst readers for its exciting thrills, Delilah Dirk appears well-suited to gracing the big screen:

Lovable ne’er-do-well Delilah Dirk is an adventurer for the 19th century. She has traveled to Japan, Indonesia, France, and even the New World. Using the skills she’s picked up on the way, Delilah’s adventures continue as she plots to rob a rich and corrupt Sultan in Constantinople. With the aid of her flying boat and her newfound friend, Selim, she evades the Sultan’s guards, leaves angry pirates in the dust, and fights her way through the countryside. For Delilah, one adventure leads to the next in this thrilling and funny installment in her exciting life.

The Delilah Dirk movie will be produced by Justin Giritlian alongside Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee and Mark Mower.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
