Films That Should Be Made: Vampire Hunter D - Bloodlust
It's only a matter of time before Vampire Hunter D gets adapted to a live-action movie. It's noted that at this point no official announcement has been made that any studio is interested. What really grabbed me about "Blood Lust" is it's mix of Victorian style with technology. The only director I can think of when watching the anime is Terry Gilliam. For some odd reason it reminds me of Brothers Grimm but a little darker and violent.
Gilliam is the type of director who can pull off a film of this size on a budget it's most likely going to get, which wouldn't be much. Although he doesn't make mainstream films this one could be just off-beat enough for him.
