Near Dark Sequel is DeadMeh
So much for the NEAR DARK remake. After word that Christopher Landon was writing it ( he wrote Disturbia ) and that Sam Bayer was in negotiations to direct Empire has learned from Brad Fuller that the project is very likely dead.
“Near Dark is probably not going to happen,” he confirmed, talking exclusively to Empire. “I think that Twilight was the same type of thing we were going for although Near Dark was a much darker, sexier, rated R version of that. But I’m concerned that, conceptually, that Near Dark and Twilight are too similar in terms of a vampire movie. For now, that movie is on hold.”
Near Dark is a classic vampire tale so at this point I am sure 80% of you are rejoicing and 20% are wishing it was still going to happen. OK maybe 95% of you are rejoicing. Tks to SkinCarver for the heads up.
