30 Days of Night: Dark Days is to begin shooting in October
. There just aren't enough vampire projects going on at the moment it seems.
, True Blood
, Vampire Dairies
the most prevalant there was also news of RDJ being cast as the new Lestat for another Vampire Chronicles
movie, news of a 4th Underworld
being written for 3-D, Tim Burton/Johnny Depp to start a Dark Shadows
film in April 2010 and rumors of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer
reboot also out there. Frankly I'm surprised a straight up Dracula movie isn't in the works right now, its about the only thing.
Anyway, I liked 30 Days of Night
and like it a bit more since it seems Twilight
and I suspect Vampire Dairies
are filing the fangs down on vamp lore for the current generation. Be good to see move vamps actually being vamps.
Ketai and Niles developed the story has Stella Oleson, Melissa George's character from the original, joining a group of vampire hunters to get revenge on Lilith, the vampire responsible for the Alaskan attack seen in the first film.
George however will not return, the role is to be recast. Ketai previously worked on the web series tie-in for the first film.
Shooting kicks off this October in Vancouver.
Too bad Melissa George will not return. I know her calendar must be full of projects demanding her attention.
