David Goyer Bites Into 'Vampire'
'Blade' man will helm adaptation of Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden's illustrated novel
According to Variety, New Regency has picked up the rights to Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden's illustrated novel ""Baltimore, or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire."
Mignola ("Hellboy") and Golden ("The Myth Hunters") will adapt the book with Goyer in place to direct.
Published earlier this summer, "Baltimore" combines vampire mythology with a post-WWI world, telling the story of Lord Henry Baltimore, who after encountering demonic forces on the battlefield, vows to wipe out the vampire plague around the world.
Goyer, who last directed "The Invisible," has been busy since departing DC Comics' long-gestating "Flash" film. He has had a hand in writing the upcoming "Jumper" and been linked to a Universal-based "Invisible Man" remake, while also being attached to the comics-based features "Super Max" and "Magneto." The latter project, an X-Men origin story set up at 20th Century Fox, is expected to be his next movie.
