San Diego Comic-Con 2012: Post-Apocalyptic Vampires vs. Zombies Flick Last Blood Secures Financing
Vampires continue to be all the rage. Sort of surprising considering how few films about them make any money at the box office. But here's a movie that has a pretty interesting premise. But will it make a good movie? I suppose we'll find out in the future.
Deadline is reporting that Reel Steel producer Rick Benattar is working with an upstart production and financing company called Cascade FilmWorks to finance a live-action adaptation of successful indie webcomic Last Blood. Published online beginning in 2006, Last Blood has accumulated 20 million readers worldwide, according to the Deadline article. It's set in a post-apocalyptic world where vampires battle zombie hordes to preserve their fresh blood depots.
The flick is slated to be helmed by Simon Hunter (Martin Chronicles) and production begins this fall. No word on casting as of yet, but we'll keep a close eye on this project. At the very lest, it sounds like a story that's ripe with ideas. Either that or it'll be next year's Priest.
