White Guy vs Hong Kong Vampires in Undying Love

Undying Love is yet another comic book series I never heard of until it got a movie deal, and thus suddenly I’m looking this stuff up. And Undying Love is about a dude who falls in love with this chick in Hong Kong, but she just happens to be a vampire, so he’s got to wipe out a whole bunch of vampires and stuff for true love, because if you kill the vampire that made her, she’s free. That logic sort of doesn’t make sense, because if you kill the Original Vampire there will be no vampires, so why doesn’t one of the other vampires just kill Original Vampire? The only conclusion I can figure out is vampires are lazy, so they deserve to be killed by normal humans. Suck it, Undying Love vampires! The True Blood vamps rule your sorry butts!

Ex-soldier John Sargent has fallen for a beautiful Chinese woman named Mei. The only thing keeping the star-crossed lovers apart: Mei’s a vampire. To free Mei from the curse, Sargent sets out to destroy the vampire that made her. The only problem: Mei was turned by one of the most powerful vampires in history…

Joe Carnahan is in negotiations to direct, which is a positive sign for an interesting action flick even if all else fails. Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman created the original comic mini series. The comic has some traditional Chinese monsters from what I’ve been reading, so maybe some good visuals. Of course, none of that changes the fact we got yet another story about a white guy running in and saving some foreign girl. This wouldn’t be a problem if there were films about Asian guys running in and saving some white girl. I’m having trouble even thinking of one…
