Producer Rick Benattar (Reel Steel, Ironclad) and newly formed production and financing company Cascade FilmWorks have signed on to co-finance the live-action feature adaptation of the popular webcomic Last Blood, reports Deadline.
Debuting as an online comic in 2006, “Last Blood” has attracted more than 20 million readers worldwide, the producers said.
“It takes place in a future in which vampires battle zombies to protect the last surviving humans and preserve their supply of fresh blood.”
Mutant Chronicles helmer Simon Hunter is directing the web-to-feature film, as was announced at last year’s Comic-Con. International sales will be handled by Palatin Media’s Bernd Schlötterer.
The picture is slated to shoot in November, with casting now underway.
