It may be an adaptation, but it’s not a remake! Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, The Hills Have Eyes, Mirrors) is tackling the vampire genre mash-up graphic novel Undying Love.
Per Deadline, “Piranha helmer Alexandre Aja is negotiating to direct Undying Love, an adaptation of the Image Comics title. The pic is being produced by Michael De Luca, Stephen L’Heureux and Benderspink. The comic was created by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, who’ve written the script. WME-repped Aja also directed The Hills Have Eyes.”
The film, “revolves around an ex-solider who falls for a vampire, though in order to be with her, he must take on her creator, who is protected by an army of monsters in the Hong Kong underworld.”
Aja’s a talented guy, but I’ve never really loved anything he’s done. It’ll be interesting to see what he does with this material.
