Images from Blood: The Last Vampire Live-Action Movie

45 Comments

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.

    Uh. The actress is a korean actress Jeon-Ji Hyun who is very famous in Asia right now. I’ve always wondered why Americans always cast Asian actors to play a different race than their own? For example, a korean girl playing a Japanese girl. WTF, there is a difference in races man. COME ON!

    That’s the problem with making a movie…a lot of people have way too much opinion on what should be and what not. if we could all just shut our traps and let them do what they have to do then we’d all have a movie…good or bad! And what’s with this race thing?????!!!!!…IT’S A F*****G MOVIE!..it’s supposed to use a cast…that’s why it’s called a cast of actors…THEY ACT!…sheesh…when will people grow up.
    Anyway, I love the anime and am looking forward to seeing the movie before making any personal comments on efforts given by people who want to entertain an audience.
