Empire spoke to Hilary Swank, star of the upcoming Conviction, at the film’s London Film Festival premiere last night, and took the opportunity to quiz her about her much-mooted involvement with John Carpenter’s Fangland. Sounds like she’s not actually attached. “I guess that’s why they call it a rumour, huh?” she told the mag’s website, confirming that she has nothing to do with the project, a post 9/11 reworking of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”. She said nothing more on the subject. Brutal. “Fangland” is based on the 2007 novel by former “60 Minutes” producer John Marks. It’s centered on a New York-based producer who travels to Romania for an interview with a notorious European arms dealer, who turns out to be a modern-day Dracula.
