David Goyer Directing The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

This vampire trend is almost getting a little bit out of hand. However, here's one that could turn out good, it's a graphic novel by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden titled "Baltimore, or, The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire." A script is being written by Mignola and Golden and the film will be directed by David Goyer (The Invisible, Magneto). You can't go wrong with Mike Mignola - Hellboy is fantastic and this seems just as richly depicted.

The newly published graphic novel tells the story of the awakening of supreme evil on Earth. Lord Henry Baltimore is bitten by a demonic vampire bat on a WWI battlefield. The plague destroys his family, and Baltimore creates a team to hunt and fight the Red King, the embodiment of all evil. Sound far-fetched? I'd say it does, but maybe that's the kind of far-fetched that makes great movies.

This whole vampire trend is starting to annoy me just a bit. First up is 30 Days of Night coming out in a month, but that movie actually looks incredible. I can't wait to see it. But then we start adding more: Willem Dafoe and Ethan Hawke in Daybreakers, Alex Proyas' Dracula Year Zero, and the bound-to-be-crap Zen in the Art of Slaying Vampires, plus more that I know I'm forgetting.
