Navajo Vampire Novels Bring a Second Sunrise to the Big Screen

If there’s any silver lining to the Twilight phenomenon, it’s that it paved the way for better vampire stories to sink their teeth into screens both big and small, and yet another one is soon headed our way. Read on, fangbangers!

Variety reports that The Romero Company has acquired movie rights to Navajo vampire story Second Sunrise, based on the first of four novels in the David and Aimee Thurlo-penned Lee Nez series.

The story, set in New Mexico, brings a Navajo vampire and a no-nonsense FBI agent together to battle shapeshifters and stop a power-mad Nazi.

Eddie Spears (pictured; “Hell on Wheels“), Sage Galesi, Balthazar Getty (“Brothers & Sisters”), and A. Martinez are currently attached to star. Joanelle Romero will direct from a script by E.C. Galesi.  Romero will produce for Red Nation Films along with Rosemary Parks.
