David Bowie ... Err ... We Mean Tilda Swinton Puts the Bite on Only Lovers Left Alive

David Bowie ... Err ... We Mean Tilda Swinton Puts the Bite on Only Lovers Left AliveThink about it, man. David Bowie did a vampire flick; now Tilda Swinton is doing a vampire flick. Does our theory that Bowie is actually Swinton seem all that far-fetched now? Go ask Ziggy Stardust.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tilda Swindon will rejoin her The Limits of Control helmer Jim Jarmusch for the director's new film, a take on the vampire romance genre titled Only Loves Left Alive.

Fellow Oscar-winner John Hurt, most lately of Tinker Tailor Solider Spy, Mia Wasikowska of Albert Nobbs, and War Horse actor Tom Hiddleston also star in the horror drama, described as an unusual love story between two vampires who have been in love for centuries.

Jarmusch is producing Only Lovers Left Alive together with Cologne-based Pandora films. The feature has picked up $1.45 million (€1 million) in production financing from state film subsidy body Filmstifftung NRW and will shoot in the NRW region of western Germany later this year.

Color me intrigued. Jarmusch runs hot and cold with me, but seeing him tackle a vampire tale could be a lot of fun.
