Apparently even indie maverick Jim Jarmusch is helpless against the seductiveness of the sexy vampire movie. It’s been announced that he’s working on a “crypto-vampire love story,” and he’s gotten a pretty impressive cast to help him do it. Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska, and John Hurt are all going to be in his as-yet-untitled vampire movie.
I thought I was bored with vampires, but a vampire movie from Jim Jarmusch is pretty damn enticing, especially with this cast. Comparisons are being made with Jarmusch’s Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, but I don’t think we have any way on knowing if this is going to be Jarmusch at his most accessible or if this will be more like an Ozu movie with vampires. I’m happy though, because both of those sound pretty good. (The Playlist)
