The upcoming young-adult vampire movie adaptation will be based on Christopher Pike's best-selling book which was re-released as 'Thirst' series.
Another new vampire movie is on the way. Variety reports that "Vampire Academy" producer Michael Preger and his Preger Entertainment have obtained rights to bring Christopher Pike's book series "The Last Vampire" to the big screen.
The series was originally printed in 1994 before later being re-released under new title "Thirst". It follows the life of Sita as a character prone not only to great spiritual beliefs and human-like compassion, but also brutal acts of retribution.
"She is at once captivating and beguiling, due in part to her personification as a beautiful, intelligent, innocent appearing, contemporary girl - who is in reality a 5000-year-old predator," Preger says of the heroine in the young-adult best-selling novel.
"Vampire Academy" itself is due on Valentine's Day 2014. The film set in a strict school for vampires designed to retain their humanity will follow the story of half-vampire/half-human Rose Hathaway as she is tasked to protect Princess Lissa.
Directed by Mark Waters ("Mean Girls"), it stars Olga Kurylenko, Gabriel Byrne, Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry and Danila Kozlovsky.
