Olga Kurylenko (“Oblivion,” “Quantum of Solace”) has been cast as head mistress Kirova “Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters” for The Weinstein Company.
The film is the first of a potential franchise adaptation of Richelle Mead’s six-volume young adult novels. The story follows Rose Hathaway ( Zoey Deutch), a 17-year-old girl who has a mental and spiritual bond with her vampire best friend Lissa (Lucy Fry).
The two girls attend a special school for Vampires who struggle to retain some humanity while other Vampires become more feral.
Mark Waters is directing from a script by Daniel Waters, while Michael Preger, Don Murphy, Susan Montford, and Deepak Nayer will produce. Shooting begins in late May.
