Upcoming Vampire Movies!!!

Ethan Hawke (Uma Thurman’s ex-husband, “Dead Poets Society, Reality Bites, Gattaca” star) has signed contract for Lionsgate's futuristic vampire film “Daybreakers”. The movie will be directed by Peter and Michael Spierig in Australia, and the plot is similar to the Milla Jovovich’s vampire movie “Ultraviolet”. Hawke will play a researcher in the year 2017, when a plague has transformed most of the world's population into vampires. In the story, as the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human or find a blood substitute before time runs out. The movie that a group of vampires struggles to save the human race, is expected to be on air before 2008.

Hilary Swank's production company has picked up the rights to John Marks’ novel “Fangland”. Swank will be starring as Evangeline Harker, an ambitious woman working on the TV news who travels to Romania to tape a piece on an area crime lord named Ion Torgu, and faces a case much worse than expected. Swank already has a lot on her schedule at the moment, including the psychological thriller “Labyrinth”. Academy award winner Swank’s movie career had also begun with a debut role in the 1992 vampire film “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
