Dimension Films has acquired movie rights to O.C.T.: Occult Crimes Taskforce, an Image Comics series that launched in July, according to Variety.

Dimension is crafting the project as a star vehicle for Rosario Dawson. The actress has headlined five recent films for the genre division, and she co-created and co-writes O.C.T., whose protagonist is an animated version of her. Dawson will produce as well.

She'll play a New York police detective who, after stumbling upon a gruesome and bizarre crime scene, is enlisted for a covert squad that uses black arts and mystical weaponry to hunt down and kill soul-sucking ghouls.

Dawson created the comic with David Atchison and Tony Shasteen, writing episodes with Atchison while Shasteen illustrates them.
