By: John M Jerva

The Punisher is taking on vampires! Well, not exactly Frank Castle but one of the actors that played him is. Screen Daily is bringing word that the Thomas Jane led vampire horror-comedy Slayers has just been acquired by The Avenue for US distribution. The company is a domestic distribution arm of the Highland Film Group and they will be bringing the film to the American Film Market in November for international buyers.

Per SD: Slayers will star Jane in the role of Elliot Jones, a man who has made it his life’s mission to search for the vampire who murdered his teenage daughter. He finally gets his shot at revenge when he hears that The Stream Team, a group of social media superstars including party girl Jules and Gen-Z pro-gamer Flynn, have got a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet reclusive billionaire Beverly Rektor at her vacation compound. When the group discovers Rektor has not planned an evening of fun and descends from a long line of vicious blood-suckers, they must fight for their lives inside her house of horrors. Can Jones save the day?

Jane will share the screen in the film with Abigail Breslin as Jules, Kara Hayward as Flynn, Malin Akerman as Beverly Rektor, and Lydia Hearst. K. Asher Levin helms the pic from a screenplay he wrote with Zack Imbrogno.

“I think Slayers is going to be a vampire movie with a big bite and I’m proud to be a part of it,” Jane said in an official statement.

Director K. Asher Kevin added:

“I’m beyond thrilled to work with the visionary team at Highland and The Avenue, supporting my unique vision for this insane spin on classic horror.”
