James Bond Skyfall director and screenwriter, Sam Mendes and John Logan, are teaming up to develop a new vampire hunter TV drama. Logan wrote the script and Mendes is set to produce and possibly direct.
According to Deadline, the series is described as "an origin story set in the 1800s London in the vein of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, which also was set in 19th century Europe, including London, and featured an assortment of fictional literary characters. The Logan/Mendes project features such characters as Van Helsing and Doctor Frankenstein as they hunt for vampires."
The series will end up on one of the premium cable networks, and it sounds like it will be an awesome series that audiences will tune in to watch. It's being created by a couple of incredibly talented individuals, so I don't see how it won't be good. What do you think of the concept?
As far as Skyfall goes, it's doing incredibly well! It hasn't even been released in the U.S. yet, but it's breaking box office records.
