Victor Salva, best known to horror fans of the director of the Jeepers Creepers films, has signed on to direct the vampire Western titles Purgatory, an indie being made by Cat and Mouse Films, writes THR.
The script, by Denis Faye, “centers on a washed-up sheriff and an English vampire hunter who team up to stop a clan of vampires from destroying an isolated, weapons-free town in the middle of the nowhere in 1892 New Mexico.”
Cat and Mouse Films’ Nick Sternberg and Jesse Felsot are producing.
Salva last directed the 2011 supernatural thriller Rosewood Lane.
