Pulp Action Pic ‘The Rising’ Battles Dark Vampire Forces

Alain DesRochers has come aboard to direct The Rising, a jungle action vampire movie being made by Millennium/Nu Image, reports THR.

The company picked up the project as a spec from Paul Sloan last year.

The script is described as having been inspired by pulp heroes Doc Savage and Tarzan, and “centers on a team of mercenaries whose search for a missing person in the jungles of Cambodia becomes a descent into the heart of darkness as they confront the dark force of a vampire.

DesRocher is as French director who may be best known for helming and co-writing a 2007 French-Canadian action movie called Nitro. The movie had the distinction of beating out, in Quebec, such studio fare as Live Free or Die Hard and Ratatouille.
