Park Sinks His Teeth into Vampire Flick

Today it was announced that Chan Wook-Park, the mad genius behind Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and the upcoming Lady Vengeance (Feb. 3), will be directed a Vampire pic entitled Evil Live, according to Variety. Park told Variety it’s more “about the question of the existence of God and Evil” than a regular vampire movie. “I’m not so interested in the vampire genre per se,” he added, “more in the religious theme.” However, he said he was a big fan of classic neckbiters, including Carl Dreyer’s 1932 “Vampyr” and both versions of “Nosferatu.” Park will also be directing a cyborg pic entitled Even If You’re a Cyborg, It’s No Problem, which is centered on two inmates — a man, and a woman who thinks she’s a cyborg (reminds me of an episode of Futurama).
