Midnight Mixes Vamps With West
Mary Lambert has signed on to helm the vampire western High Midnight for Treasure Entertainment, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The story, by first-time writer Denis Faye, centers on a broken-down sheriff who is forced to team up with an obsessed Victorian vampire hunter in order to stop an evil, undead force from consuming a frontier town in 1892 New Mexico, the trade paper reported.

Mark Heidelberger at Treasure has been developing the project for several years and will produce. Erik A. Baron is executive-producing, and ThinkFilm will be handling all North American distribution. The budget will be about $5 million.
