This was on Vampire Cafe earlier, and its news of a new film, at least i haven't seen it before.
Fango recently spoke to independent filmmaker/makeup FX artist Rob Fitz, who gave us the scoop that he has signed a distribution deal for his years-in-the-making action/horror opus GOD OF VAMPIRES. Written and directed by Fitz, the movie follows a hitman (Dharma Lim) who takes an assignment that leads him to confront vicious Asian bloodsuckers.
“I’m getting a limited theatrical release through a company called Maxim Media,” Fitz tells Fango. “It’s going to play screens in Arizona and possibly Boston; Maxim owns the worldwide rights to GOD OF VAMPIRES, and it will then go to DVD, video-on-demand and foreign markets. When I talked to my entertainment attorney, he said it was one of the cleanest contracts he had ever seen for an independent film. I was very cautious in finding distribution for this movie; that’s why it took me so long. I didn’t want to sell it to just anybody, and I’m very happy with this deal. I wanted to go with someone who believed in the film, as opposed to just pushing a product.”
Fitz, whose recent makeup stints have included SHUTTLE, the upcoming Bruce Willis sci-fier SURROGATES and a brief stint on Martin Scorsese’s 2010 thriller SHUTTER ISLAND, hasn’t heard about specific opening/street dates yet, but we’ll keep you posted on any updates. You can watch GOD OF VAMPIRES’ trailer below; the official website will be relaunching very soon, and you can see its MySpace page here.
