If anyone can break the currently stale and sparkling mold of vampire flicks, it’s independent and uncompromising American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch so we couldn’t be more excited about the news that Jarmusch is set to helm a toothy tale starring Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, and Mia Wasikowska as his vampires and John Hurt in a featured role.
Jarmusch (pictured right, Night on Earth, Dead Man, Broken Flowers) describes the currently untitled project as a “crypto-vampire love story” set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers. Plans are to shoot in Germany, Morocco, and Detroit in early 2012.
According to Screen Daily Jeremy Thomas and Reinhard Brundig will jointly produce through Recorded Picture Company and Pandora Films. HanWay Films is handling international sales. RPC CEO Peter Watson and Jarmusch business partner Stacey Smith will serve as executive producers.
Jarmusch said, “I’ve been imagining this film for years. I can’t wait to now realize it with these remarkable collaborators.”
Look for more soon!
