Thor Writers Taking on Futuristic Vampire Flick Damn Nation

As books, television and movies are increasingly inundated with insulting excuses for vampires, the only light at the end of the tunnel is the January release of Daybreakers. However, it looks like vampires might get a redemption as THR's Heat Vision reports that Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz (who recently wrote Thor for Marvel) have signed on to adapt Damn Nation, a Dark Horse comic book which tells a story of the survivors of an attack from "inhuman nocturnal predators." The action takes place after an evacuation of the US as the government has relocated to London while scientists search for a solution.
A return to form for vampires is wholly necessary right now to undo any damage done by the fashion ad worthy incarnations of the classic blood suckers seen in pop culture today (e.g. Twilight, Vampire Diaries, etc). Of course, a nice break from vampires altogether would be great to see, but I'll gladly welcome a semi-apocalyptic futuristic tale involving "inhuman nocturnal predators" just as well. Vampires in the past and present have already had the proverbial stake shoved into their heart so the best place for vampires is the unknown future. Bring it on! We'll let you know once they hire a director or attach any cast members.
