Alexandre Aja has a lot of fans in horror circles thanks to Switchblade Romance, The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha. Now he’s heading into the world of comic adaptations as Deadline reports he’s in early negotiations to direct a movie version of Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman’s Undying Love.
The comic follow an ex-soldier who falls for a girl who happens to be a vampire. The only way the two can be together is if the man takes on the vampire who created her, which also means fighting an army of monsters in the Hong Kong underworld. The story mixes traditional vampire lore with Chinese monster myths and the Hong Kong action genre.
It could certainly make an interesting movie, with plenty of Aja’s beloved violence, mixed with full on martial arts action.
