According to the The Hollywood Reporter, Rogue Pictures has purchased the film rights to an upcoming vampire comic book titled Blood on the Tracks, and have setup Neill Dela Llana and Ian Gamazon to write and direct the big screen adaptation. Michael Zoumas will produce via his Zoom Entertainment banner, and Barry Levine is producing via the formed company Blatant Pictures.
The story of Blood on the Tracks revolves around a series of killings on the New York City subway system. While at first they thought to be the work of a serial killer, it’s later discovered that the murders are the work of a vampire living in the tunnels of the city from the days when it was still New Amsterdam.
Levine was setting up a comic book company named Radical Comics that also would produce films via an division called Blatant Pictures, and he was presented the idea by an agent. He then took it to author and comic writer David Tischman. Tischman will also executive produce the film version. Artist Phillip Bond will do the art work for the comic.
