Seagal the Vampire Slayer

Steven Seagal, vampire slayerSteven Seagal has been kind of notorious for wanting to avoid appearing in any kind of sci-fi or horror-themed movies. It almost happened a few years back with the Anthony Hickox flick Submerged, but the whole "mutant" aspect got nixed in favor of generic terrorists shortly before shooting began. Not sure why he's so opposed to such a thing. His own daughter starred in three Gamera movies; what makes him think he's so above the fray? Now it looks like we might finally be getting our wish - sort of.

Moviehole reports that Steven Seagal is appearing in an upcoming action horror movie from cinematographer turned director Richard Crudo called Last Night. Seagal will play the commander of a special forces unit sent in to deal with a hospital overrun by bloodsucking vampires.

Before anyone starts getting too excited about the prospects of an all-out Steven Seagal battling vampire flick, I decided to do some digging around the web (i.e., Google) and found a wee bit more info about Last Night. For starters Seagal's role is reportedly not a large one, little more than a cameo actually. Don’t be at all shocked if he ends up getting the Executive Decision treatment in this one. IMDB lists the main star of the movie as Tanoai Reed AKA "Tao" on the new "American Gladiators".

Also, the vampires are spawned by some sort of mutant virus that has gotten loose in the hospital.

Sony Entertainment will eventually distribute Last Night on DVD. Don't expect it anytime soon though. It reportedly only finished shooting this past March.

Given the poor quality of so many of his recent DTV efforts, if nothing else, at least being a film about vampires means this is one Steven Seagal flick that's supposed to suck on purpose.

LOL, sorry thats all I can do...... Seagal, yeah I remember him. I use to think he was so cool back when I was a kid. Then I got older and he kept making the same movies. over and over. You know when I worked at blockbuster people rented his movies like you wouldnt belive. Despite what many naysayers and I think. He has a very extremely loyal fanbase.
