‘Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters’ Has a Director and Cast, is a Thing

The basic pitch for the ‘Vampire Academy’ book series sounds like someone got the grand idea to mash ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Twilight’ together into one franchise…which means the film version is going to make a bajillion dollars. Despite the success of the books and the surefire success of the film, when your movie is called ‘Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters,’ we’re allowed to scoff…because your movie is actually titled ‘Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters.’

Anyway, all of this has been a roundabout way of letting you know that the film now has a cast and director.

According to Deadline, Mark Waters has landed the job of shepherding what the producers must hope is the next big young adult movie franchise. Waters is best known for ‘Mean Girls’ but has also made ‘Freaky Friday,’ ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’ and ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins,’ which gives him a range from “Very Good!” all the way down to “Blergh!”, so we have no idea whether or not this is a good thing or a bad thing. However, the fact that the script is by ‘Heathers’ screenwriter Daniel Waters (yes, the director’s brother) suggests that there may be more to this project than meets the eye. After all, these are the men behind ‘Heathers’ and ‘Mean Girls’ making a movie about vampire schoolgirls. Unless they go all Twilight-y on us, this could be interesting.

The cast is full of a bunch of people you’ve never heard of (but that’s not bad thing), with Zoey Deutch playing Rose, Lucy Fry playing Lissa and Danila Kozlovski playing Dimitri. Having not read the books, we have no idea who any of these characters are, but we can safely assume that they attend a Vampire Academy. And they may be Blood Sisters.

‘Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters’ will begin production this summer.
