Das Films and Blumhouse Productions are teaming on an adaptation of John Marks’ novel “Fangland” that is shaping up as a star vehicle for Hilary Swank, says Variety.
Sriram Das of Das Films and Jason Blum of Blumhouse will produce with Swank, who is in line to play a TV producer who travels to Romania for an interview with a notorious European arms dealer. Turns out, he’s a modern-day Dracula.
Marks is a former “60 Minutes” producer, and Mark Wheaton (The Messengers) turned in a first-draft adaptation of Marks’ novel just before the strike.
Tracy Underwood will executive produce.
