Dick Wolf is taking a dive outside his rich Law & Order pool for a new project on the small-screen, Variety is reporting. He’s teaming with Disturbia duo D.J. Caruso and J.H Wyman on a “comic-book style drama that will use the same greenscreen technology utilized in the hit pic 300.” It’s based on a graphic novel character by Max Allan Collins called Johnny Dynamite. Read the project deets here.

Strike Inches Closer to Reality
Variety also has the latest updates in the potential upcoming writers’ strike with a story by Dave McNary about the WGA‘s Monday email that seeks approval from its members for strike authorization. Check all the facts and the nasty back-and-forth here.

Friday the 13th, Again
Hollywood must be running out of original horror ideas. THR reports that New Line has hired Damian Shannon and Mark Swift to write Friday the 13th, a remake of the horror classic. This time, the trade paper says, the new pic will focus on horror icon Jason again in the infamous setting of Crystal Lake. Oh yeah, and Michael Bay is one of the producers.
