Yesterday, we brought you pics from Vampire Academy and, now, we have a trailer to share. The film is an adaptation of Richelle Mead’s YA series and is directed by Mean Girls‘ Mark Waters. Daniel Waters – of Heathers – scripted the film. I’ll try to keep repeating that to myself in an effort to generate some excitement for myself, but we’ll see. This already has two strikes against it: Vampires and it’s based on a YA property.
The film stars Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson, Cameron Monaghan, Sami Gayle, Claire Foy and Ashley Charles. Rose Hathaway (Deutch) is a Dhampir: half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi.
