Yet Another Vampire Pic: Abigail Breslin & Julianne Moore To Star In 'Innocence'

The Playlist By Catherine Scott | The Playlist February 12, 2011 at 2:31AM

Variety is reporting that the world will be graced with another vampire film titled "Innocence," based on the book of the same name by Jane Mendelsohn. Right now Abigail Breslin and Julianne Moore are attached to star in the story about a grieving teenage girl who discovers that her private school is home to a nest of vampires. Though roles haven't been confirmed, Breslin will most likely be playing main character Beckett, with Moore playing the school nurse that embeds herself in Beckett's life by marrying her father. The film will be directed by Hilary Brougher, a widely unknown female director who last directed "Stephanie Daley" with Tilda Swinton and Amber Tamblyn.

Variety is reporting that the world will be graced with another vampire film titled "Innocence," based on the book of the same name by Jane Mendelsohn. Right now Abigail Breslin and Julianne Moore are attached to star in the story about a grieving teenage girl who discovers that her private school is home to a nest of vampires. Though roles haven't been confirmed, Breslin will most likely be playing main character Beckett, with Moore playing the school nurse that embeds herself in Beckett's life by marrying her father. The film will be directed by Hilary Brougher, a widely unknown female director who last directed "Stephanie Daley" with Tilda Swinton and Amber Tamblyn.

The film is being shopped at the Berlinale European Film Market as we speak, with London-based Bankside Films hoping to strike a deal. "Innocence" is the first picture to come from the recently signed first-look deal Bankside has with Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler's Killer Films (the team behind HBO's upcoming "Mildred Pierce"). Bankside is also looking to sell rights to "Trishna," Michael Winterbottom's update of Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the d'Urbervilles" starring Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed.

Moore is coming off of a great, if overlooked, performance in this summer's indie hit "The Kids are All Right." She's only got "Crazy, Stupid, Love" coming out this year, so if snatched up, "Innocence" could look to land in 2012. Breslin has a couple of voice parts coming out -- "Rango" this year and "The Wild Bunch" next -- with a small role in the bloated "New Year's Eve" by Garry Marshall. The talent could be interesting, especially with an unknown director, but aren't we done with vampires yet? Sound off in the comments about the latest in the vampire Hollywood glut.
