Remake of Tony Scott's 1983 vampire flick, The Hunger."

With pop-culture's Twilight phenomena, or as we like to refer to it here at home; The Harlequin of the Vampire culture. It does not surprise me that The Hunger is in the works. It excites me, but no surprise. Needless to say, the hubby and I are looking forward to it.

I doubt, but I hope, the flick starts with Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) crooning to, "Bela Lugosi's Dead". That was the coolest. Speaking of cool. You think David Bowie will be in this? Doubt that too. Either way, we are looking forward to this flick.

The Hunger Remake Coming From Warner Bros.

Joining the remake cavalcade is a retelling of Tony Scott's 1983 vampire flick The Hunger. Not surprising considering how vamps are Hollywood's new "it" things. The news was teased today via THR, and the only details we know about it is that the film is now in development over at Warner Bros. The original film told the tale of the Egyptian vampire lady Miriam, who subsists upon the blood of her lovers. In return the guys or girls don't age... until Miriam has enough of them. Unfortunately that's currently the case with John, so his life expectancy is below 24 hours. Desperately he seeks help from the famous Dr. Sarah Roberts. She doesn't really believe his story, but becomes curious and contacts Miriam ... and gets caught in her ban, too. How knows how faithful this new flick will be to the original plot-wise. Dig on the trailer below and let's hope for the best, shall we?
