There’s another new vampire picture in the works entitled Manhattan Undying. Directed by Babak Payami, the film concerns a vampire who seeks out an artist to paint her a portrait so that she can see her image for the first time. Variety adds that “she is unaware that the artist is dying and desperately working to create his last masterpiece that will give him artistic immortality.”
Luke Grimes, who began his career with All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, signed to the project a bit ago, however, Variety says a female lead has been found to play opposite him.
Disturbia‘s Sarah Roemer has been cast to play the vampire. The actress has also appeared in The Grudge 2 and Asylum.
Babak Payami previously helmed Silence Between Two Thoughts in 2003.
