As Skyfall breaks box office records overseas, Deadline reveals that the next project for director Sam Mendes and screenwriter John Logan is a new supernatural television series which has already been sent to premium cable networks (meaning we can expect to eventually see it on a channel such as AMC, HBO or Showtime). The site goes on to describe the currently untitled project as, "an origin story set in the 1800s London which features such characters as Van Helsing and Doctor Frankenstein as they hunt for vampires." It's currently unknown whether or not they will also reteam for the next James Bond movie, but Logan is set to write the next tow instalments according to recent reports.

Could be really food. Hopefully they keep the fighting and stunts practical and realistic instead of replicating the ridiculousness of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.

Could be cool if don right.

HBO series would awesome. But please dont make it look too much like Van Helsing and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (movie version). Tired to that nonstop black and white, good vs evil battle. Make the lines grey for onces. And it has to be scary too. And no Ninja Vampires or Hunters. :)
