With the popularity of vampires lately, it should be no surprise when a vampire related property gets picked up for the big screen, especially when with Day Men's unique take on the mythology.
"We're taking a very simple approach to the vampire mythos. Our vampires are more physical than they are mystical," Stelfreeze told CBR in April. "Vampires are like a metaphor for power, and that is what this story is about. Sure, there are fangs and blood but the story is really about the lust for power and control. Our main character, David, is at the epicenter of all these tidal forces. This story bears a stronger resemblance to 'Godfather' than it does to 'Dracula.'"
Combined with Universal's success with 2 Guns, an earlier movie optioned from Boom! that recently hit theaters, it's a no-brainer to return to the growing studio even if Day Men just launched. If 2 Guns is any indication, it looks like Universal may treat the property right, it looks like they are looking for good stories more than already established properties to hold their tent up.
