It appears Anton Yelchin likes vampires, as after last year’s Fright Night he’s heading back into a film about the bloodsuckers, although this time with a more arthouse bent, as Deadline reports that he’s signed on to star in Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive, a drama about the centuries-long romance between two star-crossed vampires.
When it was first announced, the movie was due to star Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender in what Jarmusch describes as a “crypto-vampire love story”, following the centuries-long love story of two vampire lovers. Since then John Hurt has signed on and there have also been rumours Tom Hiddleston has stepped in to replace Fassbender.
However what isn’t certain is who will play the central vampiric lovers. Jarmusch is deliberately keeping quiet about his plans, but it certainly sound like something larger scale than he normally takes on.
