Last August, we reported that director Jim Jarmusch had lined up talented actors Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, and Mia Wasikowksa for his next film. Today, we finally have some details on the project and it sounds like a doozy. Jarmusch tells ScreenDaily that the film is a “‘crypto-vampire love story’, set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers.” Swinton, Fassbender, and Wasikowska will all play vampires with John Hurt in a featured role.
While I’ve grown more than tired with the glut of vampire flicks we’ve seen over the past several years, Jarmusch is obviously going to craft a vampire flick unlike any other. Granted, I’m not the biggest fan of his work, but I can appreciate that he’s uncompromising and original in his vision and I’m glad filmmakers like him can still get their movies made.
