I’m happy to announce that El Gato Negro is coming to TV via MGM studios, and we already have the main character cast: Diego Boneta is starring as the Nocturnal Warrior himself! Via Deadline:
MGM Television is developing a television series based on Richard Dominguez’s Latino comic book series, El Gato Negro: Nocturnal Warrior. Diego Boneta (Luis Miguel: La Serie, Rock of Ages) is attached to star in the series as the titular hero and also will executive produce under his production company, Three Amigos. Joel Novoa (Arrow) will co-executive produce.
MGM Television will produce and MGM will internationally distribute the series and are interviewing showrunners and writers to complete the creative team. Andrew Mittman, MGM’s SVP Television Production and Development, will oversee the series for MGM Television.
This is the culmination of a lot of hard work over the years by creator Richard Dominguez and myself, and I can’t be happier. As for the short film I directed, El Gato Negro: Prey, has been submitted to many film festivals, and I’ll let everyone know when/where it will play! And look for updates here as the TV Series begins to take shape!
