Byzantium: Neil Jordan’s new vampire project

Posted by Glennis Byron on May 15, 2011 in News tagged with , ,

I’ve been reading some dreadful reviews of Scott Charles Stewart’s new vampire western, Priest, with numerous complaints about Stewart needlessly flogging dead vampires. But Neil Jordon (Interview with the Vampire) obviously thinks there’s still some mileage in the creature, and has begun working on a new vampire picture, Byzantium. Scripted by Moira Buffini and inspired by her theatre play, the film will star Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton. It’s a vampire story about a mother and a daughter who make something of a lethal team. Shooting is set to begin in October.
