Is Tony Scott Hungry for a Hunger Sequel?

Tony Scott’s 1983 vampire flick The Hunger, about Egyptian vampire Miriam Blaylock’s seduction of a young female doctor, might receive the sequel treatment in the very near future – if the British filmmaker has anything to say about it.

Scott talked to Coming about his plans for the sequel, including the direction in which he plans to take it: ”I’m not going to tell you how we’re doing it, but I’m controlling it and it’s gone to the next level. It’s not a reinvention or reinterpretation, it starts in New York and it ends up in Sao Paulo, so it’s a very different movie, but it springboards off the original. We’re writing it right now and we’ve got a great writer, Erin Wilson.”

The Hunger was based on a novel by Whitley Strieber. No word on whether or not Scott intends to use Strieber’s literary sequel, The Last Vampire, as a source for the story.

    Heh. Can’t be outdone by rumors about his brother wanted for an Alien prequel, I guess.

    Nah, no one was asking for a sequel. Hell, I haven’t even seen the original!

    The Hunger is such a curiousity. See Bauhaus! See Deneuve looking insanely more attractive than a woman 15 years here junior (what happened to Sarandon between Rocky Horror and the early 80’s?)! See Bowie! See a completely vapid 80’s relic!

    I say these things and I like The Hunger–so, is there any demand at all for any sort of sequel/revisioning/etc?
