Undying Love

After his failed attempt to adapt "Daredevil," director Joe Carnahan is aiming to get another comic book adaptation under his belt.

"The Grey" helmer is reportedly in talks to direct an adaptation of "Undying Love," Deadline has learned. The graphic novel, which was written and illustrated by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, tells the story of two lovers, an ex-soldier named John Sargent and a Chinese vampire named Mei. Sargent goes on a journey to kill the vampire who made Mei in order to free her from her curse.

This might not be Carnahan's next project, as he's already working on "Nemesis" and a remake of "Death Wish." However, it is exciting to know that Carnahan hasn't given up on the comic book movie genre after missing out on the "Daredevil" remake.

It shouldn't come as any surprise to comic book fans that major Hollywood studios are busy snapping up rights to just about any graphic novel that they can get their hands on. With 2012 being the year of the superhero (thanks for that, "The Avengers," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises"), the comic book medium continues to prove that it can make big bucks on the big screen as long as adaptations are done correctly.

The latest two projects to be picked up are "Lucid" and "Undying Love." Warner Bros has claimed both of them, which makes sense since it seems like their plans to adapt the DC Universe—much like Disney is with Marvel's—isn't panning out as well as the studio would have hoped. Sorry, "Green Lantern," you just didn't quite bring it all together for us.

Undying LoveComic book movies and vampire stories have dominated Hollywood of late, so what happens when you combine the two into one tale? If you're the folks at Warner Bros., you get "Undying Love."

Heat Vision reports that the WB, Stephen L'Heureux and Benderspink (run by Chris Bender and J.C. Spink) are producing an adaptation of Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman's recently launched Image Comics series "Undying Love," a vampire tale with all the blood and romance you might expect, but also with a healthy heaping of Chinese monster lore for good measure.
