It's been a good six months since hearing anything on the VAMPIRE ACADEMY front, yet here we are today with a new international one-sheet for the horror-comedy. Looks like the flick is set to hit theaters in some capacity this Valentine's Day. Could be a nice counterprogram to the all the schmaltzy rom-coms released around that time, no?
Adapted from the Richelle Mead novel by Daniel Waters, and directed by Mark Waters - here's what VAMPIRE ACADEMY is all about:
Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St Vladimir's Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements - water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St Vladimir's, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.
Sarah Hyland, Zoey Deutch, Olga Kurylenko, Sami Gayle, Lucy Fry, Gabriel Byrne, Cameron Monaghan and Joely Richardson all star in the flick.
