Jim Jarmusch Casts Fassbender, Swinton, and Wasikowska As Vampires

By

The vampire genre might be overstuffed right now, but would you begrudge Jim Jarmusch for taking a swing at it with his next film? Let him convince you with his cast of actors, all of whom would make perfect vampires: Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton, and Mia Wasikowska. (Yes, Fassbender and Wasikowska together again — it's like an undead Jane Eyre, rendering Pride and Prejudice and Zombies almost moot!) Jarmusch is describing the untitled film as a "crypto-vampire love story, set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers." Hey, you. Stop salivating. [Screen Daily]
