HBO is reportedly planning to make the big screen version of the vampire-themed TV show after airing another season or two.
"True Blood" could become the next big vampire movie after the sensational "Twilight" film series. Words on the street are, HBO is planning to turn the hit TV series, which stars Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin, onto the big screen.
What's Playing, via Cinema Blend, speculates that the "True Blood" movie will be made after HBO airs one or two other season(s) of the show, which has just wrapped the third season. Moreover, the site says there is a chance that series creator and showrunner Alan Ball will direct the film.
If the news is indeed true, "True Blood" will not become the first HBO's show which is adapted into movie. Previously, "Sex and the City" which was aired by the same network has been made into film franchise with the second installment just hitting theaters last summer.
"True Blood" kicked off its season premiere in 2008 and soon becomes one of HBO's hit series. The story itself is based on "The Southern Vampire Mysteries" series of novels by Charlaine Harris, and details the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional small Louisiana town. The main character, Sookie Stackhouse, is described as a telepathic waitress who falls in love with vampire Bill Compton.
