First Flashy Sales Poster for Neil Jordan's 'Byzantium' Vampire Film
Irresistible. Immoral. Immortal. What a tagline. Ready for yet another vampire film to keep an eye on, if you're interested? London production company WestEnd Films has revealed some rather flashy sales poster artwork on their official Facebook (via ONTD!) today for the upcoming vampire thriller titled Byzantium, directed by Neil Jordan, about a mother and daughter vampire duo who form a deadly pact. That mother-daughter duo is played by Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton, who you can kind of see on this in a red dress staring out past the huge neon sign. It's a unique style, I hope it represents the tone of the film as well.
You can see the fullsize art on their Facebook, but this definitely caught my eye. I am curious to see more.
Two women arrive in a nameless smalltown. Their names are not their own. Their relationship with each other is not clear. Are they sisters, as their assumed identities declare? Or are they mother and daughter?
Byzantium is directed by Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan, of the films Mona Lisa, The Crying Game, The End of the Affair, The Good Thief, Breakfast on Pluto, The Brave One and Ondine previously, as well as work on "The Borgias". The screenplay was written by Moira Buffini, based on her own play. This was shot mostly in Ireland as A Vampire Story, and stars Jonny Lee Miller, Caleb Landry Jones, Sam Riley and Tom Hollander. WestEnd Films produced, and StudioCanal is distributing in the UK, but no other release info available yet.
