We have news of three new films in three days! According to Fangoria online, the same film company that produced Twilight, has now lined up an entirely different kind of vampire film (thankfully) with "Elevator Men"
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Summit Entertainment, the home of the TWILIGHT film franchise, is acquiring a screenplay spotlighting the less romantic side of vampirism. Titled ELEVATOR MEN, it’s the first screenplay by former DreamWorks executive Marc Haimes.
That moniker (which will probably change) refers to one of the evil mind games that the story’s creatures play with their human victims. “It’s a reaction to all of these stories now—TV shows and movies—that play this kind of romantic, fantastical, sexy aspect of getting involved with monsters,” Haimes tells the trade. “This is the dark, sinister version of what really happens when you decide you’re going to get close to really bad things. That fantasy element is something I wanted to look at and play the exact opposite: the grim reality of bedding down with a monster.” Mark Gordon, whose credits include SPEED and SAVING PRIVATE RYAN and who is currently an executive producer on REAPER, and Josh McLaughlin of Mark Gordon Productions will be among the film’s producers.
