Alexandre Aja To Direct Vampire CBM UNDYING LOVE
Yes, another Vampire flick. This one is based on the Image Comics title by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, who will also write the script for the movie. Piranha director Aja will take the helm..
Will they ever get off the Vampire buzz? Doesn't look like it. Now we can add this adaptation of the Image comic Undying Love to the list of blood suckers in the pipeline. But this one will be directed by Alexandre Aja - the man behind the pretty terrifying and gory Switchblade Romance (or "High Tension" Stateside). He went on to direct a decent remake of The Hills Have Eyes, and of course the pretty entertaining Piranha 3D. He also brought us the fairly lousy Mirrors however. Still, he knows his way around a horror flick so this might turn out to be one of the good ones. According to Deadline..
The film revolves around an ex-solider who falls for a vampire, though in order to be with her, he must take on her creator, who is protected by an army of monsters in the Hong Kong underworld.
The movie will be produced by Michael De Luca, Stephen L’Heureux and Benderspink. Has anyone read this comic? Any good? Here is a brief synopsis. The movie doesn't seem to be straying from the premise anyway..
A horror-action tale, equal parts vampire mythology and Chinese folklore, set in modern day Hong Kong. Ex-soldier John Sargent has fallen for a beautiful Chinese woman named Mei.
The only thing keeping the star-crossed lovers apart: Mei's a vampire. To free Mei from the curse, Sargent sets out to destroy the vampire that made her. The only problem: Mei was turned by one of the most powerful vampires in history..
