Now, this is exciting! From today's Publishers Marketplace:
Director Guillermo del Toro trilogy of vampire thrillers, written with Chuck Hogan, beginning with THE STRAIN, about an invasion of New York by a vampiric virus, for publication in summer 2009, to David Highfill at William Morrow, by Richard Abate at Endeavor, with manager Gary Ungar of Exile Entertainment and attorney George Hayum (world).

oh that's cool. vampires are now really popular at the mo. last horror trend was zombies, and now it's vampires' turn.

I like Guillermo del Torro. i'm not too crazy for the Hellboy movies, though, but I did like Pan's Labyrinth.

My taste run exactly the opposite of commenter deaf brown trash punk. I enjoyed the Hellboy movies although I liked Hellboy 1 better.

I found Pam's Labyrinth to be a very imaginative movie, but the story was such a tragedy and I was quite sad when the movie ended.

It's only recently that I started reading good vampire novels (trying to steer clear of the garbage), but this one looks like it good definitely have potential!!!

A vampire virus. Color me thrilled.

This could go the "Racing to Find a Cure" route, or the "They're not evil, they're sick" ploy. Hopefully neither. Maybe both?
