Created and co-written by Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame and based from his graphic novel. The vampire film is set around the WWI era and sounds very promising. David S. Goyer, who is credited for bringing a lot of fantastic comics to the screen will be producing. Goyer will also take a shot at directing the film. Although I haven't been a fan of Goyer's directing abilities with Mike Mignola's involvement I feel confident about the project.
