Western Actors to Meet Eastern Filmmaking Sensibilities in Vampire
This was tried on the Masters of Horror episode "Imprint", and due to the communication breakdown between director Takashi Miike and the English only speaking actor Billy Drago, the results were hilariously hammy! Hopefully director Iwai Shunji will fare far better!
According to Screen Daily a hot cast (oh how we HATE that expression) of young Western stars has joined Vampire, the English-language feature debut of Japanese director Iwai Shunji, including Keisha Castle-Hughes and Rachael Leigh Cook (pictured right).
In the film Kevin Zegers (Frozen, Dawn of the Dead, Wrong Turn) plays a schoolteacher with a taste for human blood who searches for suicidal young women as his victims, all of whom he falls in love with before their deaths.
Also on board the film, which started shooting in Vancouver last week, are Kristin Kreuk ("Smallville"), Adelaide Clemens (X-Men: Origins), and Trevor Morgan (Mean Creek). Previously announced cast includes Amanda Plummer and Japanese star Yu Aoi.
