The Romero Company has acquired movie rights to Navajo vampire story Second Sunrise with Eddie Spears (pictured in “Hell on Wheels”), Sage Galesi, Balthazar Getty (“Brothers & Sisters”) and A. Martinez starring, reports Variety.
“The story, set in New Mexico, brings a Navajo vampire and a no-nonsense FBI agent together to battle shapeshifters and stop a power-mad Nazi.”
Joanelle Romero will direct from a script by Carolyn Dunn and E.C. Galesi. She will produce for Red Nation Films along with Rosemary Parks (“Thirteen”).
Second Sunrise is being developed as a franchise starter, based on the first of four novels in the Lee Nez series, written by David and Aimee Thurlo. “Pale Death,” “Blood Retribution” and “Surrogate Evil” are the other books.
