Ridley Scott may direct
John Logan has been set by Fox 2000 to adapt “The Passage,” the Jordan Ainsley (pseudonym for author Justin Cronin) vampire novel being developed for Ridley Scott to potentially direct, reports Variety.
In the novel, terminally ill patients become healthy after they are bitten by bats in South America, and the government conducts secret tests on human subjects to see if the virus can cure illness. The result is an apocalyptic unleashing of bloodthirsty vampire test subjects that include death row inmates.
Logan and Scott previously worked together on Gladiator.
