Bloodstrike Comic Gets Adapted

Adi Shankar’s 1984 Private Defense Contractors (“The Grey,” “Machine Gun Preacher”) is setting up a film adaptation of the vampire solider comic “Bloodstrike” says Variety.

The story focuses on a team of super-soldiers secretly injected with vampire blood — making them an elite strike force feared by all enemies.

Launched in 1993, over 30 million copies of the title have been sold. Comics scribe Rob Liefeld and Brooklyn Weaver will also produce.
