RONNY YU's VAMPIRE MOVIE

Ronny Yu might not be heading head first into a ?Freddy vs Jason? sequel at all, with news he?s optioned the rights to the Japanese anime film ?Blood: The Last Vampire? for a live-action movie.

The anime tells the story of a vampire hunter on a military base in Japan. Hiroyuki Kitakubo directed the original film, which was released in 2000. 'They call it The Last Vampire Killer,' Yu said in an interview with SciFi Wire. 'You have this teenage girl. She never ages, and she always wears this high-school uniform. But she carries this huge samurai sword, and she has a mission to get rid of all these leftover vampires.'

Yu said he would insist on casting a Japanese actress in the role, though he has no one in mind yet. Yu added that Blood's period sets it apart from another teenage vampire killer, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. 'It takes place right after the Second World War, so I thought that is a very interesting era, because there's so much death after the war, all this blood created all these vampires,' he said.

Yu added that he plans to expand the anime film, which is only 48 minutes long, to feature length by exploring the vampire killer's backstory. 'Me and my writer, we had to go back to the origin,' Yu said. 'Where does she come from? What organization she's working for? And expand that, the past history. How does it make her come to this world?'
