Kevin Eastman reports that he's currently at work on a screenplay for the live-action movie. The film is expected to be budgeted at no more than $500,000. Eastman will co-produce along with director Michael Tristano. They are currently shopping the concept to studios.
"The story is basically a twisted new version/combination of Yojimbo, Fistful of Dollars and Last man Standing with Vampires, Zombies, and a female lead."
There is no shooting schedule yet for the film and no actors have been signed. However, Eastman does have his eye on a certain cast. "We've asked Playmate Victoria Zdrok to play the lead female, and Michael Giordani to play the lead Vampire. Michael currently has the opening scene in Mel Gibson next film, We Were Soldiers," Eastman said.
