First clip from ‘Byzantium’, Neil Jordan’s vampire tale, highlights Saoirse Ronan
While director Neil Jordan’s recent forays into filmmaking have skewed closer to human drama than horror, his most famous film remains 1994’s Interview with the Vampire, the most successful adaptation of Anne Rice’s series of vampire novels. Thus, news that he would be telling another vampire story by helming the film adaptation of Moira Buffini’s play Byzantium was met with excitement. Buffini, who also wrote 2011’s Jane Eyre, takes on adaptation duties on her own play as well, with a cast that includes Saoirse Ronan, Gemma Arterton, Jonny Lee Miller, Sam Riley, Caleb Landry Jones, and Warren Brown. The first clip from the movie has now been released, and can be seen below.
