The historical horror spins continue to flourish as Sherri Browning Erwin’s reps are out with a spec of her upcoming literary mash-up Jane Slayre, which turns Charlotte Bronte’s “Jane Eyre” into a vampire slayer. The comes on the heels of the announcement that Tim Burton & Timur Bekmambetov would be producing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Also in the works is a film adaption of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. What’s to come? I can only imagine.
“Jane Slayre, our plucky demon-slaying heroine, a courageous orphan who spurns the detestable vampyre kin who raised her, sets out on the advice of her ghostly uncle to hone her skills as the fearless slayer she’s meant to be. When she takes a job as a governess at a country estate, she falls head-over-heels for her new master, Mr. Rochester, only to discover he’s hiding a violent werewolf in the attic- in the form of his first wife.
Can a menagerie of bloodthirsty, flesh-eating, creatures-of-the-night keep a swashbuckling nineteenth-century lady from the gentleman she intends to marry? Vampyres, zombies, and werewolves transform Charlotte Bronte’s unforgettable masterpiece into an eerie paranormal adventure that will delight and terrify.”
