30 Days of Night almost ready to start filming
Director David Slade has told Zap2it that he is ready to start directing the film adaptation of Steve Niles and Ben Templesmith's 30 Days of Night in New Zealand this July.
This is great news. 30 Days was the most original and interesting horror comic and vampire plot that I have seen in forever. I was excited when Sam Rami's Ghost House Pictures picked up the movie rights. It has been slow going since then, but now it seems to finally be getting off the ground.
Slade also stated that he will try and be as thoughtful as he can to Templesmith's art style. If this is true, the movie will have a look that is completely original.
