BloodRayne: The Movie 

A little news piece in today's Advocate mentioned that filming has started in Romania on BloodRayne, with a script by Guinevere Turner. Does anyone else still picture her as Max in Go Fish? Kristanna Loken stars, along with Ben Kingsley, Michelle Rodriguez and Michael Masden.

This is based on the computer game of the same name, but is a prequel to it. I'm not a gamer myself, but The Guyfriend assures me that it's a very cool one. The game is set in WWII Germany, and BloodRayne is a Dhampir, a human-vampire hybrid, who hunts down both vampires and Nazis.

The movie tells the story of her origins, and is set in 18th century Romania. Abandoned at birth, she ends up in a circus sideshow. There she is discovered by vampire hunters, who persuade her to join them in their cause. IMDB shows it as targeted for a 2005 release. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm sure The Girl will have a different opinion...
