Alexandre Aja Circling Undying Love Adaptation

According to Deadline, Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Piranha 3D) is in talks to direct Undying Love, an adaptation of the Image Comics title.

Written and illustrated by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, the high-concept vampire tale is officially described as follows:

A horror-action tale, equal parts vampire mythology and Chinese folklore, set in modern day Hong Kong. Ex-soldier John Sargent has fallen for a beautiful Chinese woman named Mei. The only thing keeping the star-crossed lovers apart: Mei’s a vampire. To free Mei from the curse, Sargent sets out to destroy the vampire that made her. The only problem: Mei was turned by one of the most powerful vampires in history…

Coker and Freedman penned the script; Chris Bender, Stephen L’Heureux and J.C. Spink are producing. Warner Bros. was attached to the property early last summer.
