Matt Reeves’ Last Vampire Movie Did So Well They’re Giving Him Another One

Monday, April 18 by

“More vampires!,” a Hollywood executive barks into his phone. “We need more vampires, and quick! Who can we get to direct another vampire movie!?” The executive’s harried assistant suggests Matt Reeves, director of last year’s vampire flop Let Me In. The executive says “Reeves! Of course! Get Reeves on the phone!”

Believe it or not, the preceding scene must have actually happened at some point, because Matt Reeves has been brought on to helm The Passage. Here’s a bloodsucking plot synopsis:

“In The Passage, a group of terminally ill cancer patients get healthy after being subjected to the bites of bats in South America. Naturally, the government see this as a cure for the disease and starts experimenting. They end up with legion of nearly indestructible, telepathic vampire masters that begin infecting the populace.”

That sounds pretty cool, and definitely not in the Twilight mold of sexy vampires. Reeves must be something of a vampire himself, since he’ taken on both this and a remake-but-not-really of They Live in the past few days. When does he sleep? (Deadline)
