The Goblin joins Daybreakers
Willem Dafoe must have enjoyed getting his vampire jones on in the 2000 film Shadow of the Vampire because, seven years later and on the other side of a recurring stint in the “Spider-Man” trilogy, he’s tossing on the pointy teeth for Daybreakers, the Spierig brothers’ vampire flick.
Leading man Ethan Hawke broke the news at Star Pulse News about Dafoe’s addition to the cast. “I’m going to make a vampire picture and I’m going to chew on some necks. Willem Dafoe and I are duelling vampires. It’s a vampire movie set way in the future where everyone is a vampire and we’re all eating our own resources, so we’re trying to get off on foreign humans. We’re trying to get off of trying to create blood substitutes. It’s a big analogy about what’s going on now. It’s really dark and weird and everybody’s sucking each other’s blood.”
Dafoe also joins Sam Neill who was recently cast.
