Don’t Kill De Luca, He’s Already Dead

Phoenix Pictures and Mike De Luca Prods. will team for a feature adaptation of the Charlie Huston vampire novel “Already Dead” reports Variety.

Huston’s novel is the first of a five-book series that revolves around a vampire who happens to be a private detective hired by a Gotham socialite to track down her runaway daughter.

The city’s vampires are afflicted with a virus that requires them to drink blood, and they run through the city in clans.

A new virus that turns victims into carnivorous zombies threatens to upset the balance between humans and vampires.

Scott Rosenberg (“Con Air,” “Beautiful Girls”) will write the script.
