Undead Duo's Daybreakers
Sci Fi Wire chatted with Michael and Peter Spierig, creators of the Aussie zombie epic UNDEAD, about their new vampire movie DAYBREAKERS, which they hope to roll next year for Lions Gate release in 2007. They plan to shoot Down Under, and Peter tells the site, ?It?s not another vampire story, like UNDERWORLD or BLADE. It?s serious drama.? Michael adds, ?Not surprisingly, [DAYBREAKERS is] about two brothers who take two different paths. One wants to be a vampire and live forever and thinks being a vampire is one of the greatest things. And the other brother thinks that as a vampire you lose your humanity, and he wants to become a human being again.?
The slightly futuristic story is set in a world where vampirism is the norm and, according to Peter, ?There are fewer human beings, and the blood supply is thinning out. The only way to survive is to become human again, and then become the hunted.?
