Breck Eisner Adapting Vamp Comic ‘Blood of the Innocent’

This past week Fearnet spoke with comic book creator Mark Wheatley (“Frankenstein Mobster,” “Breathtaker”), who told them that Breck Eisner (The Crazies) is actively working on an adaptation of Wheatley’s Dracula comic Blood of the Innocent, co-written by writer Rickey Shanklin, with art by Marc Hempel and Wheatley. “He’s trying to make “Blood of the Innocent” the picture he does after Escape [From New York],” Wheatley explains. “The writer, Bill Marsilii, has been working on the pitch now for almost a year. But Breck came on board, I think, back in February.” The story is simple: “It’s Dracula versus Jack the Ripper…That’s it. That’s the whole concept.
