It sounds like Joe Carnahan (The Grey) will take on writing and directing duties for an adaptation of Undying Love, a graphic novel series created by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman. The story centers on John Sargent, an ex-soldier who falls in love with a Chinese woman, only to find out that she’s a vampire. The only way they can be together is if Sargent can defeat her incredibly powerful creator. We previously reported that Coker and Freedman were writing the script for Warner Bros., but Carnahan’s deal would have him writing up another draft as well as directing.
