‘Dracula Untold’ Director Helming Vampire Film ‘Red River’

Gary Shore knows a thing or two about vampires, you could say.

Deadline is reporting that Shore, who directed 2014’s Dracula Untold, has been tapped to direct the thriller Red River, which also centers on a bloodthirsty main character. Roman Blaney penned the script, which is set in an isolated town in Ireland.

In Red River

A bloodthirsty drifter befriends an immigrant family and avenges their murdered father.

Shore said of the project, “A story about a vampire hell-bent on teaching an isolated town a thing or two about its treatment of outsiders is a valuable reminder that man is capable of being the real monster. I love Ronan’s script – heartbreaking, violent and touching all at once. With influences like High Plaines Drifter, Shane and Let The Right One In, it’s definitely an original in the genre with the potential to be a modern classic.”

The film is in pre-production and shoots later this year in Northern Ireland.

Mark Huffam (Alien: Covenant) is producing with Piers Tempest, as well Martin Brennan and Michael B. Jackson. XYZ Films is exec producing.

    As one of the few who didn’t hate ‘Dracula Untold’, I say this sounds pretty interesting. I would give it a watch.

    Vampire Clint Eastwood?! I’d watch.

    I sure do hope this vampire movie has Tom Cruise in it. Fighting monsters and being generally actiony. That would be rad.

        And Tom Cruise running. Hallelujah.

    Actually might be good. I hope the vampire has the traditional powers.
    i.e. wolf, bat and mist form, weather control… I miss those.
