Most know Sam Mendes as being the guy who directed such excellent and stylistic films as American Beauty and Road to Perdition. And many more know him from his recent work on the latest Bond film, Skyfall. Now, it looks like he and his Bond-scriptwriter buddy, John Logan will be working together on something new – a television series about vampire hunters.
The story, as it is known thus far, will be set in 1800s London and will have a cast consisting of literary characters like Van Helsing and Doctor Frankenstein. Together, these fictional bad-asses will hunt down and smite vampires. And that’s about all we get for now.
The duo are aiming for a premium cable network to take on the show, which means audiences will be graced with the all glorious blood, guts and (perhaps most importantly) boobies that usually characterize such networks
I’ve always been a fan of Mendes and am really looking forward to seeing what he does with this opportunity. It could be some great potential goodness for the horror genre and the start of another new series worth tuning into each week.
