Here’s the key to selling a movie pitch: take something everyone is familiar with, but add vampires. At least that’s what it feels like these days. Anyway, it sure worked for ‘The Redemption of Cain,’ Will Smith‘s upcoming biblical/vampire epic, which has been given the official go-ahead from Sony.

The news comes courtesy of The Wrap, who also mention that the film is looking to start filming sometime in 2013. The project, which has been in development for a few years now, has been something of a passion project for Smith. Although he’ll definitely be producing the film through his production company, Overbrook Entertainment, he may very well star in the project. Heck, he’s apparently even toying with making this his directorial debut.

Although we don’t know anything about the actual plot of the film, ‘The Redemption of Cain’ will somehow find a way to merge the biblical epic and the vampire movie. In fact, unique takes on Biblical fables seem to be all the rage these days. Just look at Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming take on ‘Noah,’ which seems to be telling the story of one man cramming two of every animal into massive boat as if it were a post-apocalyptic¬†epic. If that can work, why can’t Cain and Abel and the Bloodsucking Undead deliver the goods?
