New Film: Town Creek

Joel Schumacher is to direct a new vampire movie entitled Town Creek. Schumacher was, of course, the director of The Lost Boys.

The following is from a Gold Circle Films Press Release:

"Schumacher rolls with 'Creek'

"Joel Schumacher has signed on to direct "Town Creek," a vampire horror movie for Gold Circle.

"The story centers on a West Virginia man who comes to terms with his moral qualms and helps his brother wipe out a family that had been protecting a Nazi vampire and who had kept his brother captive for him to feed off of for years.

"Dave Kajganich wrote the screenplay.

"Gold Circle topper Paul Brooks is producing along with Tom Lassally and Robyn Meisinger. Norm Waitt and Scott Niemeyer are exec producing.

"Zak Kadison is co-producing and overseeing for Gold Circle.

"Lionsgate is distributing, while Mandate is handling foreign sales.

"A March shoot is planned.

"'Creek' will be Schumacher's return to the vampire genre, in which he made a memorable mark with 1987's "The Lost Boys." The helmer is in postproduction on "The Number 23," which stars Jim Carrey."
