Director Alexandre Aja gearing up to direct vampire comic Undying Love

Mar. 8, 2012by:

Director Alexandre Aja is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to direct an adaptation of Image comics' vampire series UNDYING LOVE from creators Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, who also wrote the script for the film.

Here's the synopsis:

A horror-action tale, equal parts vampire mythology and Chinese folklore, set in modern day Hong Kong. Ex-soldier John Sargent has fallen for a beautiful Chinese woman named Mei. The only thing keeping the star-crossed lovers apart: Mei's a vampire. To free Mei from the curse, Sargent sets out to destroy the vampire that made her. The only problem: Mei was turned by one of the most powerful vampires in history...

Sounds pretty cool.  I'm a fan of Aja (with the exception of MIRRORS) and dig his style.  His HIGH TENSION was a blast and (blasphemy!) I felt his THE HILLS HAVE EYES remake was far superior to the original.  Aja brings a good sense of gore and terror to his work and knows when to apply the cheesiness and when to hold it back (witness PIRANHA 3D).  UNDYING LOVE sounds like a good fit for him, as it's got the horror element, but will also allow him to stretch his action legs. 

More to follow as this develops.

Extra Tidbit: I'd love to see another High Tension-esque film from him. What project would you like to see Aja tackle?

enough

with the fucking vampires already!

what's with all these great newer directors doing the vampire thing? Timur, Reeves (Let Me In was great but now his next project is ANOTHER vamp movie?!) and now Aja? come on, enough already with the damn vampires! These are awesome directors, I just wish they would do something else, because I'm dying to see what these guys do next... but pissed that this is what they're choosing!

WHAT ??!

What the fuck happened to COBRA ? I thought it was his next (and dream) project! I'd rather see Cobra than YET ANOTHER vampire flick ! I guess an "R rated, SF, Sexy, action comedy, adapted from a manga" movie is NOT bankable enough right now !

I try to stay positive

It's so easy in today's day and age to become one of those people that go on forums like this and just bash everything that comes out. I try not to be one of those people. I try to stay positive and if I have something negative to say, I try to be respectful of others because I know not everybody is going to have the same opinion as me.

Anyway, this movie could be good. I never read the graphic novel so I really have no point of reference when I say this but the synopsis just sounds like

Anyway, this movie could be good. I never read the graphic novel so I really have no point of reference when I say this but the synopsis just sounds like the same ol been there and done that. Plus, on top of that, I am really getting sick of vampires. They are everywhere. It was fun when they first starting coming out but now, they are all over the place and truthfully, for me, they have lost some of their magic.

However, I do want to contradict myself right now and say that when they made I am Legend, they should have been vampires like they were in the book and not those...zombiebeastcreature things.

ALL that being said, if I see a trailer and it looks good...I'll still go see it! haha

At the end of the day, I will really see just about anything!

Dude--wait a minute. Seriously. Wasn't Alexandre Aja going to do the remake of 'Pet Sematary?'
