Production Begins On “Vampire Academy” Film

Filming has commenced in the UK on “Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters,” the film adaptation of the first book in Richelle Mead’s best-selling “Vampire Academy” series.

Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry lead a cast that includes Olga Kurylenko, Gabriel Byrne, Joely Richardson and Danila Kozlovsky.

Mark Waters helms from a screenplay by Daniel Waters, with filming to take place at Pinewood Studios and on location.
