Raimi directing vampire pic?

07.15.2002

Sam Raimi reportedly has "strong interest" in adapting the comic 30 DAYS OF NIGHT into a feature film and DreamWorks and MGM are among the companies battling for rights. Bidding has reached heights higher than $1 million for the vampire tale about a small town in Alaska where darkness looms for almost a month every year. Vampires soon become aware of the phenomenon and beat foot for the sunless town for a feeding frenzy. Raimi would produce the film with an option to direct. DreamWorks seems to be the leader in regards to securing the rights considering head Michael De Luca prepped the highly successful BLADE series while with New Line. 30 DAYS creator and writer Steven Niles actually created the concept for a feature film but couldn't successfully pitch the idea years ago. He decided instead to adapt it into a comic where it now has piqued the interest of Hollywood. Niles is also writing the screenplay for SPAWN 2 for New Line.
