Filmmaker Matthew Vaughn (“Kick Ass,” “Stardust”) may produce or direct a film adaptation of the sci-fi/crime noir graphic novel mini-series “Turf” reports The Guardian.
Set in New York 1929 at the height of prohibition when the mob ruled the city, the story follows the arrival of the mysterious Eastern European Dragonmir Family. These vampires unleash a series of brutal attacks on the gangs, forcing a surviving tough guy and an alien to team-up and stop it. A strong willed young reporter and an ancient prophecy all come into play as well.
The comic was created by famed British radio & TV presenter Jonathan Ross. The link is not unusual either as Ross’ wife is Jane Goldman, Vaughn’s regular co-writing partner.
