AFM ’11: Art, New Cast and Plot for Vamp Flick ‘Byzantium’

Some news out of the AFM as we’ve learned that Danny Mays (The Adventures of Tin Tin), Bradley James and Sam Riley (Control, Brighten Rock) will join Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan and Caleb Landry Jones in Neil Jordan’s Byzantium, the thriller from the filmmakers behind Interview with the Vampire that’s about a pair of women who claim to be vampire siblings.

In addition, we’ve landed some AFM art and the first official plot details: “On the run for murder, two young “sisters” arrive penniless at an English seaside town. Clara is a fiercely modern woman who has her eyes on the future and no time for the past. Teenager Eleanor is shy and innocent. Yet they both hide the same secrets: they are really mother and daughter, and they are both … vampires!

Eleanor is exhausted by 200 years on the run and desperate to settle down. But little does she know that her mother has been protecting her all of the years from their own kind, “The Brotherhood”. To escape them, they must either blend in or continue running away. But just as they think they may have escaped, their past rapidly catches up with them.Byzantium
