Lucas Foster and his Warp Films have picked up the rights to Blood Oath, a vampire action novel written by Christopher Farnsworth, with the aim of fast-tracking a feature franchise about a vampire secret agent, reports Heat Vision. A mix of political techno thrills and supernatural action, Oath centers on a vampire captured by the U.S. Army just after the Civil War who is forced to swear an oath to President Andrew Johnson and has protected the presidency in the Secret Service for nearly 150 years. In Oath, the vampire, named Nathaniel Cade, is paired with a new human handler and finds himself embroiled in a plot involving a monstrous new form of biological weapon with a connection to the White House. The deal comes just as the book, from Penguin/Putnam, hits stores Tuesday.
