Matt Reeves Bites Into Another Vampire Film, <i>The Passage</i>

Fresh from his remake/adaptation Let Me In, director Matt Reeves is turning again to the world of vampires with Fox 2000's post-apocalyptic horror film The Passage, Deadline reports.

Based on Justin Cronin's bestselling 2010 novel, The Passage is set in a near future where a group of terminally ill patients is treated with a drug based on a virus carried by a species of South American bats. But what looks like a cure ends up transforming the patients into nearly indestructible, telepathic creatures on the hunt for fresh blood. Fox purchased the rights to the novel, part of a planned trilogy, in 2007, long before is was published.

According to Deadline, Reeves will supervise a rewrite of a script by John Logan (The Last Samurai, Rango), who's busy with the next James Bond film. Another writer is expected to be brought in.
