The newest trailer for Neil Jordan’s latest vampire thriller, Byzantium, just hit the web. The film stars Gemma Arterton, Saoirse Ronan, and Sam Riley. Arterton and Ronan play a mother and daughter vampire duo who agree to a deadly pact.
Gemma Arterton is most known for her roles in Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, the James Bond flick, Quantum of Solace, and the recent release Hansel and Gretel: Vampire Hunters. Saoirse Ronan starred alongside Eric Bana in Hanna, and Kiera Knightley in Atonement. Ronan also stars in the newest Stephanie Meyer book-turned-movie, The Host, due out later this year.
Director Neil Jordan is known for his 1994 vampire thriller Interview With A Vampire, starring Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise that gained a cult like following. In 1992, Jordan won a Best Screenplay Oscar for The Crying Game. It’s exciting to see Jordan try his hand at female vampire movie after the success of Interview With A Vampire.
As seen on Deadline.com, no official release date has been set. Check out the Byzantium trailer below…
