Christopher Pike's immensely popular book series THE LAST VAMPIRE has been picked up by producer Michael Preger and his team at Preger Entertainment in order to turn it into a film franchise. The Last Vampire series chronicles the life of the 5,000 year old "last vampire" named Sita.
Here's a bit from the press release:
Christopher Pike’s epic legend of “Sita,” introduces a character prone not only to great spiritual beliefs and human-like compassion, but also brutal and horrific acts of retribution -- in a world rife with ancient secrets, supernatural miracles and unimaginable peril. From the dark depths of her ancient origins to her present day chameleon-like existence, Sita’s world is very different than what most humans perceive. She is at once captivating and beguiling, due in part to her personification as a beautiful, intelligent, innocent appearing, contemporary girl-- who is in reality a 5000-year-old predator.
This is not the first time a film version of THE LAST VAMPIRE attempted to take flight; a movie was in the works back in 2010, but obviously that never left the ground.
No word on when we'll actually get to see THE LAST VAMPIRE do her thing.
