Jason Flemyng, best known for his collaborations with Matthew Vaughn and roles in such pics as X-Men: First Class and Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, is sinking his teeth into directing with vampire thriller Eat Local, reported Deadline.

Filming is underway “Daredevil‘s” Charlie Cox starring alongside Mackenzie Crook (Pirates Of The Caribbean, “Game Of Thrones”), actor-writer-director Dexter Fletcher (Eddie The Eagle), Freema Agyeman (“Doctor Who”) and Eve Myles (“Doctor Who,” “Torchwood”).

“Eat Local revolves around unwitting Essex boy Sebastian (newcomer Billy Cook), whose promise of a night of passion with a ravishing cougar quickly turns into a fight for survival after she decides to introduce him to some of her friends — a coven of hungry vampires — at a remote farmhouse. Added to the mix, a heavily armed band of mercenary vampire hunters crashes the party.

Danny King, a BAFTA nominee for Wild Bill, penned the script.

Ruth Jones (Gavin & Stacey), Annette Crosbie (Into The Woods) and Vincent Regan (Lockout, 300) also star.

Rod Smith of Evolution Pictures is producing, along with Jonathan Sothcott and Neil Jones of Hereford Films.
