Looks like Superman’s about to get some help fighting vampires. Okay, not so much help, because one of the new castmembers, Taye Diggs, will be playing a vampire, and those guys are never really all that helpful. The other one, Anita Briem, is described as a “sexual conquest” of leading man Brandon Routh’s character Dylan Dog, so I guess that sort of qualifies as “help”.
THR has more:
The actors join Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”) and Sam Huntington (“Fanboys”) in the supernatural thriller being directed by Kevin Munroe (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”). Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly (“Sahara”) penned the “Men in Black”-style vampire-werewolf-zombie film, which they adapted from the bestselling 1986 Italian comic series, “Dylan Dog.”
Diggs will play Vargas, the head of a vampire family, and Briem is Elizabeth, one of Dylan Dog’s (Routh’s) potential romantic conquests.
“Dead of Night” is currently shooting in New Orleans. Diggs is most famous as the young buck who seduced Stella in “How Stella got her Groove Back” and Briem was recently in “Journey to the Center of the Earth” with Brendan Fraser. She’s the cute blonde one in the pic below.
