by Rob Caprilozzi

A group of Hollywood heavyweights are set to tackle the undead in the upcoming vampire comedy, Slayers.

Highland Film Group, who landed the worldwide rights, will introduce the film to buyers at the upcoming AFM (November 1-5), with the company’s domestic distribution arm, The Avenue, acquiring domestic rights and targeting a 2022 release.

Directed by K. Asher Levin, Slayers stars Thomas Jane, Abigail Breslin, Malin Akerman, Kara Hayward and Lydia Hearst.

The synopsis of the film is as follows: Elliot Jones (Thomas Jane) has made it his life’s mission to search for the vampire who murdered his teenage daughter. Jones gets his shot at revenge when The Stream Team, a group of trend-setting social media superstars including party-girl Jules (Abigail Breslin) and Gen-Z pro-gamer Flynn (Kara Hayward), is offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet with reclusive billionaire Beverly Rektor (Malin Akerman) at her multimillion-dollar vacation compound. However, the group quickly learns it’s not an evening of fun and games, but instead a night of survival when they discover their host is a descendant of a long line of vicious blood-suckers and they are trapped in her house of horrors! Can Jones help them survive or will they become just another short-lived trending story?

“I’m beyond thrilled to work with the visionary team at Highland and The Avenue, supporting my unique vision for this insane spin on classic horror,” said Levin.

“I think Slayers is going to be a vampire movie with a big bite and I’m proud to be a part of it,” noted Thomas Jane.
