It has been revealed that newcomer Matt Venne will pen the script for Rogue Pictures' remake of the cult classic vampire film Near Dark, according to Dread Central.
Fangoria got word from Venne, who wrote White Noise 2, which is currently shooting in Vancouver, ďThe film is a gritty look at the life of this small group of people trekking through the Southwestówho also happen to be vampires. In combination with that realistic approach, though, there are images in the original film and in Eric Red and Kathryn Bigelowís screenplay that are absolutely beautiful. Completely dreamy and captivating. Pure poetry. Itís an incredible project, and Iím honored to be writing it.Ē Click the link below for the full story. In the original a young man reluctantly joins a travelling "family" of evil vampires, when the girl he'd tried to seduce is part of that group.
