Joe Carnahan is in final negotiations to direct Undying Love, a vampire action project set up at Warner Bros.
Michael De Luca is producing with Stephen L’Heureux and Benderspink’s Chris Bender and J.C. Spink.
Created by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman as a comic miniseries published by Image Comics, Love mixes up the traditional vampire lore with Chinese monster myths as well as the Hong Kong action genre.
The story centers on an ex-soldier who falls for a girl that happens to be a vampire. The only way the two can be together is if the man takes on the vampire who created her, which also means fighting an army of monsters in the Hong Kong underworld.
Alexandre Aja was previously attached to the project but has since dropped out.
Carnahan last directed The Grey, the gritty survival movie that starred Liam Neeson that was one of 2012’s early hits. Before that he directed The A-Team and Smokin’ Aces.
He is repped by CAA.
