John Logan And Sam Mendes Pair Up In TV For Vampire Hunter Drama

With the latest James Bond movie Skyfall already smashing box office records, the film’s co-writer John Logan and director Sam Mendes are re-teaming on the TV side. In what would be both Logan and Mendes’ series debut, the two have partnered for a drama project. We’ve learned that the script, written by Logan with Mendes attached to direct, has been sent to premium cable networks.

It is described as an origin story set in the 1800s London in the vein of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which also was set in 19th century Europe, including London, and featured an assortment of fictional literary characters. The Logan/Mendes project features such characters as Van Helsing and Doctor Frankenstein as they hunt for vampires.
Sounds pretty cool to me. But since I don't get HBO, Showtime, Starz, ect. I guess I'm out of luck with this one.
