With the genre already lacking in truly original ideas isn't it about time for someone to realise that the vampire subgenre in particular is spreading itself a little thin these days? As if there wasn't already a vamp literature adaptation overload with the likes of 'The Vampire Diaries' and the nauseating nonentity that is the 'Twilight' series but it seems another series of novels is about to be turned into the latest treat for young impressionable adults. Reliance Entertainment and IM Global are co-financing the big screen adaptation of Richelle Mead's 'Vampire Academy' and the delectable duo of Zoey Deutch ('Beautiful Creatures') and Aussie Lucy Fry ('Lightning Point') are set to star in the first installment 'Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters'. The movie is based on the first book in a series of 6 volumes but as to whether it has the legs for a full sextology.
The girls will play Rose and Lissa respectively whilst Russian actor Danila Kozlovski is on board the project filling the role of Dimitri. Scribe Daniel Waters ('Heathers') has already penned the script which will be shooting this Summer with his brother and 'Mean Girls' director Mark Waters behind the camera.
"The tale of Rose Hathaway, a 17-year-old girl who has a mental and spiritual bond with her vampire best friend Lissa. The two girls attend a special school for Vampires who struggle to retain some humanity while other Vampires become more feral."
