Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton are up to play the leads in the female vampire movie “Byzantium” says The Hollywood Reporter.
Moira Buffini penned the script about a mother vampire who turns her own daughter into a vampire. The pair form a lethal partnership, sometimes posing as sisters.
Filmmaker Neil Jordan (“Interview with the Vampire,” “The Crying Game”) is set to direct the $11 million project which begins shooting in October.
Stephen Woolley, who has worked on several films with Jordan over the past three decades, will produce.
