Gladiator Pair Enter Vampire “Passage”

“Gladiator” scribe John Logan and director Ridley Scott may re-team on the vampire drama “The Passage” for Fox 2000 says Variety.

Based on Jordan Ainsley’s novel, the story follows terminally ill patients who become healthy after they are bitten by bats in South America, and the government conducts secret tests on human subjects to see if the virus can cure illness.

The result is an apocalyptic unleashing of bloodthirsty vampire test subjects that include death row inmates.

Logan is set to adapt the script as a potential directing vehicle for the always busy Scott.
