Tom Hiddleston had an awesome 2011 with roles in The Avengers, Midnight in Paris, The Deep Blue Sea, and War Horse.  Now he’s replacing the only guy who had a better 2011, Michael Fassbender, in Jim Jarmusch‘s Only Lovers Left Alive.  Jarmusch said back in May that the film is a “‘crypto-vampire love story’, set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers.”  THR adds that the horror drama is “described as an unusual love story between two vampires who have been in love for centuries.”  With Jarmusch at the helm, you may as well toss out any expectations or pre-conceived notions you have regarding a vampire movie.

Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, and John Hurt are still on board to co-star.  Only Lovers Left Alive will shoot in Germany later this year.  Hiddleston will next be seen reprising his role as Loki in The Avengers, which opens in 3D on May 4th.
