The first image from French director Chris Nahon’s live-action remake of the Japanese anime “Blood: The Last Vampire” has finally surfaced on the net via Jeon Ji Hyun Online, who posted this black and white image from the movie (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below) and a couple of behind-the-scenes images of Jeon Ji Hyun in action. It looks like a template for an upcoming movie poster, although I hope not, because the image, well, doesn’t exactly pop, even if they added color. Then again, it could just be a test image or something benign like that, so there’s really no point in reading too much into it.
A vampire named Saya, who is part of covert government agency that hunts and destroys demons in a post-WWII Japan, is inserted in a military school to discover which one of her classmates is a demon is disguise.
The film will mark the English-language debut of Korean superstar Jeon Ji-hyun, here working under the name Gianna Jun. “Blood: The Last Vampire” co-stars Allison Miller, Masiela Lusha, Colin Salmon, and Koyuki, and is scheduled for a 2008 release.
