First announced way back in 2008, Simon Hunter has been set to direct Last Blood, a live action adaptation of the Keenspot graphic novel that takes place after a zombie apocalypse, when vampires must battle to protect the last surviving humans to keep alive the necessary blood supply.
Hunter helmed the terrible Mutant Chronicles, the actioner that stars Thomas Jane, John Malkovich, Ron Perlman and Devon Aoki, as well as the James Purefoy-starrer Lighthouse. The pic will be formally announced at Comic-Con this weekend.
Last Blood will be produced by Ironclad exec producer Christian Arnold-Beutel as well as Red Giant Media’s Aimee Schoof, Isen Robbins and Benny R. Powell, and Keenspot’s Chris and Bobby Crosby. The Crosby siblings created the graphic novel with illustrator Owen Gieni, and Bobby Crosby wrote the script with Nick V. Sterling. “Last Blood” was published as an online comic in 2006, drawing almost 20 million readers around the world. Two prequel novels are in the works and they will be published this Halloween on multiple platforms.
