Russell Mulcahy Slays Vampires

Russell Mulcahy (“Resident Evil: Extinction,” “Highlander”) will helm “Zen in the Art of Slaying Vampires” for CP Productions and Capitol Films reports Variety.

Based on the first in a three-novel series by Steven-Elliot Altman, the hero is turned into a vampire as he and his lover are attacked in lower Manhattan.

She dies, and he struggles to overcome his murderous instincts and thirst for blood through Zen meditation. A struggle for his soul ensues between the bloodsuckers and the zen masters.

Altman is writing the script and is working on a game version of “Zen.”
