Nanny & Hank optioned by Uptown 6 Productions

Go to the movie theater today and you can see sparkly, lovelorn vampires, but soon, according to Bluewater Productions their darkly comedic tale of septuagenarian bloodsuckers will soon share space on the silver screen. Uptown 6 Productions, whose first feature film 16-LOVE hits theaters in January 2012, purchased the rights to Bluewater’s successful graphic novel “Nanny & Hank,” a unique take on the vampire mythos. It follows two grandparents ready to enjoy their golden years with travel and grandchildren, and how a horrible encounter with a disgruntled vampire changes their world forever and ever. “Nanny & Hank: Retirement is Hell is the ‘funniest’ take on mortality and morality to ever splash the pages of a comic book,” said Uptown 6’s president Adam Lipsius. “The protagonists’ plight is rife with truth and humor. These heroes creep me out with how cool they are, and Uptown 6 is committed to bringing every giggle and shiver to the big screen. We couldn’t be more excited to be in business with Bluewater, the new tastemakers in indie comics.” Uptown 6 is working towards a 2013 release, for the first volume of the Nanny and Hank saga.
