Based on the novel by Viktor Pelevin
The book is actually a sequel to Pelevin’s “Generation P,” which Ginzburg has already adapted. The follow-up veers into vampire territory, following a young bloodsucker in Moscow as he maneuvers through love, money and obsession with beauty. Is he an vampire version of Patrick Bateman?
Ginzburg says the story “redefines the genre.”
He hopes to start the film in early 2012; his take on Generation P is currently played at Cannes.
