Swank in Fangland

05.09.2007

Hilary Swank The fact that Hilary Swank had to win two Academy Awards to actually register on Hollywood casting directors' radar may have left some psychic scars or at least a crippling inferiority complex in the MILLION DOLLAR BABY actress as, following the box office bomb that was the apocalyptic horror THE REAPING, she's agreed to star in another horror film (nothing against horror, of course, but it clearly isn't doing it for The Swanks so maybe it's time to explore other options). This one, at least, appears to have some promise. According to Page Six, she'll next star in FANGLAND, an adaptation of the John Marks novel of the same name. The story is a re-imagining of the Dracula fable centering on a young TV producer named Evangeline Harker (Swank) who's sent to Romania to investigate a legendary criminal figure, the result of which is her being exposed to overall horrific evilness that may or may not be related to vampires. Swank can next be seen in the romantic drama P.S., I LOVE YOU and the thriller LABYRINTH.

Awful nice profile shot of Swank, though. I have a hard time not picturing her as a "boy." Well, I used to anyways.

Reimagining equals can't think of anything better to do.

I can't stand it when "re-imaginings" involve characters with names that are ridiculously similar to the character that they're based on.

It's like doing an Indiana Jones re-imagining where the lead character is named Montana James. It's just cheesy and uninspired. If you're going to leech off of another piece of work, at least put in enough effort to come up with an original name or two.

I haven't read the book, so her character may be a descendant of Jonathan and Mina, but if that's

Okay

So she makes the oddball film decision every once and while. At the end of the day, she's still ridiculously hot. As long as one of said decisions involves some obscene sex scene (I know you're not in desperate need of an Oscar like Halle, but c'mon, give us something along those lines...) in the future, I'm down for whatever.
