It’s been a while since there was a romantic vampire movie. Okay, maybe not.
Deadline reported that director Alexandre Aja is in negotiations with Warner Brothers Pictures to adapt “Undying Love” on to the big screen.
The film would be based off the Image Comics’ graphic novel written by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman.
Here is a description from Image Comics:
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…
The film will be produced by Michael De Luca and Stephen L’Herureux.
Aja has a good horror film resume in the past decade. He directed “Piranha,” “Mirrors,” and “The Hills Have Eyes.” So it’ll be interesting on what he could do with this story.
