Rogue Pictures pre-emptively bought film rights to an upcoming vampire comic book titled Blood on the Tracks
, setting Neill Dela Llana
and Ian Gamazon
to write and direct the adaptation. Michael Zoumas
is on board to produce via his Zoom Entertainment, while Barry Levine
is producing via his newly formed company Blatant Pictures. Blood
revolves around a series of killings in the New York subway system. While at first it is thought to be the work of a serial killer, it later is revealed that the murders are the work of a vampire who has been living in the tunnels of the city from the days when it was still New Amsterdam. CAA agent John Levin, who reps Levine's company, came up with the initial concept and pitched it to Levine. Levine was setting up a comic book company named Radical Comics that also would produce movies via an arm called Blatant Pictures. He took it to author/comic writer David Tischman, who shares co-creator credit. Tischman will exec produce. Phillip Bond
will do the art for the comic.
