Matt Reeves Sinks Teeth Into Fox 2000's Vampire Epic 'The Passage'

Deadline: Fox 2000 has set Matt Reeves to direct The Passage, the film based on the bestselling Justin Cronin novel about an experiment that goes awry and creates a swarm of bloodthirsty vampires that brings the world to the brink of extinction.

That doesn't sound awesome? This guy knows how to direct a movie too. I'm down.

I'm with Autofire. I'm all vampired out. Zombies are really starting to push it as well.

I'm hooked...vampires? Don't get me started. If it's well written and directed you can't beat a good vampire movie...and I'm not talking about the Twilight Saga. I know that offends some people but it wasn't all it could be.

I hope this new one is.
