Another new batch of images from Chris Nahon’s vampire actioner “Blood: The Last Vampire”, based on the original Japanese anime that you’ve probably never heard of. Never you mind that. The live-action film looks like a fantastic bloodbath, starring South Korean superstar Jeon Ji-hyeon (here going by Gianna Jun) in her first International English-speaking role, swinging a sword like no one’s business. Plus, there are a bunch of native English speakers out there to fill out the dialogue stuff, as if you’ll care.
From Samuel Goldwyn Films, Blood: The Last Vampire brings to life an English language live-action feature movie of the original Japanese anime feature film from a producer of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Hero. Gianna (My Sassy Girl, Daisy) stars in the film as Saya, a 400-year-old demon-hunting vampire slayer working undercover in Japan for a secret organization, on a mission in the Vietnam War era. The cast also includes Koyuki (The Last Samurai, Always: Sunset on Third Street), Michael Byrne (Beyond the Sea, Gangs of New York), Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Punisher: War Zone, Clubbed), and Allison Miller (“Kings”). The film features stunt choreographed by Cory Yuen (Transporter 3, Red Cliff), is produced by Bill Kong and Abel Nahmias, with screenplay by Chris Chow.
Starring Gianna Jun, Allison Miller, Liam Cunningham, JJ Feild, Koyuki, Yasuaki Kurata, Michael Byrne, Colin Salmon, Andrew Pleavin, Larry Lamb, Constantine Gregory, Masiela Lusha, and Ailish OConnor. Directed by Chris Nahon (“Kiss of the Dragon”).
