We’re still waiting for Albert Pyun’s Tales of an Ancient Empire to be released, but that’s not stopping the busy director from looking ahead to his next project. He just updated his MySpace Blog with some news that has us more than a little intrigued. Read on for the details.
“We are beginning the early stages of prep next week on a new film and will begin shooting January 2. And yes, it revolves around vampires. But not the way you’d imagine. I can’t say much yet except it’s a hybrid of genres and will likely be shot in 3D. It’s definitely going to be somewhat experimental — if you can imagine a movie like ‘Tales’ crossed with ‘Run Lola Run’. Female and male leads, more romantic with a cluster of superhuman villains trying to wreck their relationship. It’s yet ‘Untitled’ until all the agreements are finalized this week.
The film was written by Cynthia Curnan and has as its inspiration the O. Henry short story ‘Roads of Destiny’. She uses ideas of inevitable destiny and how we are continuously determined to control our fate. Our Heroine and Hero fight desperately to avoid their seemingly preordained outcomes in 80 minutes.
Its going to be a very kinetically shot film and told in almost real time. We have been casting, and this film will feature a young cast of unknowns but most with Parkour / Circus de Soleil physicality and skills. That gives you an idea of just how kinetic the film will be. All about frenetic movement and fluid chaos.
It asks and answers the questions — can we change our fate…and should we?”
