It’s only been on a few weeks, but we have to admit one of our newest guilty pleasures is The CW’s “The Vampire Diaries”, and the main reason is Ian Somerhalder’s flamboyant portrayal of the oh-so-bad vamp brother Damon Salvatore. Which ensures that we’ll be keeping tabs on his newly announced involvement in the “Gothic fairytale” Cradlewood.
Director Harry Weinmann (a visual effects vet) and Instinct Entertainment have scheduled a spring, 2010 kick-off of the film in Melbourne, Australia. Based on an original story by Weinmann and written by Stephen Sewell and John Paul Chapple, the film tells the following story (synopsis provided by Moviehole):
Beck may have found the perfect man in Josh. Handsome, artistic, young, rich and taking her to meet his mother, Irene, at the family home of Cradlewood. But Josh is more than rich; Josh is heir to a fortune. A fortune steeped in history and around which swirls a fog of family tales and legends. And which one day soon will be all Josh’s. But something goes wrong and Beck has to watch as her loved one descends into a dark madness of paranoia and fear. Will Beck be able to help Josh escape from his destiny, or will she be dragged down into his torment with him?
