Zen in the Art of Slaying Vampires Coming to the Big Screen
Did anyone go out and see Resident Evil: Extinction? What did you think? In the mood for more killing I hope? RE:X director Russell Mulcahy has already been set to direct his next film, a project titled Zen in the Art of Slaying Vampires based on a novel by Steven-Elliot Altman that's the first in a three-book series. Sound badass? I thought so!
No vampire has ever refused to partake in the ritual…until now. Death deals no mercy to one man who rises in a SoHo alleyway to find his lover dead and his own body ghastly transformed…
In the film, the main character is turned into a vampire as he and his lover are attacked in lower Manhattan. She dies, and he struggles to overcome his murderous instincts and thirst for blood through Zen meditation. A struggle for his soul ensues between the bloodsuckers and the zen masters.
After reading that plot description, I'm worried this is going to be another Blood + Chocolate. I really hope it isn't, as maybe this could be something pretty cool. The author of the book, Steven-Elliot Altman, is also writing the script. This is another one of those "has anyone actually read this book" kind of endings. Anyone?
