Danny Huston (“The Constant Gardener”) will play the leader of a horde of vampires in 30 Days of Night, an adaptation of Steve Niles’ graphic novel.
The Columbia Pictures project takes place in an Alaskan town where 30 days of continual winter darkness attracts the vampires. Josh Hartnett and Melissa George already are cast as a husband-and-wife sheriff team who try to save the town’s residents.
David Slade (“Hard Candy”) is directing. Shooting is scheduled to begin this month in New Zealand. The project is being produced by Ghost House Pictures, the genre specialist headed by “Spider-Man” director Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert.
