Movie rights to Chris Farnsworth’s BLOOD OATH — about vampire Nathaniel Cade who is sworn to protect the president and the United States from supernatural threats — have been picked up by Lucas Foster, who produced “Law Abiding Citizen” and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.”
“Cade has an amazing history, a great attitude and a great set of powers. He is a complete movie figure,” Foster told the Hollywood Reporter.
Hollywood is saturated with vampire projects, but Farnsworth’s novel “bucks vampire fatigue by focusing on action and bringing in different supernatural creatures,” the Hollywood Reporter says.
“It’s a big idea and it’s an idea that in the wrong hands could have been cheesy,” Foster said. “He did a very good job of making the reader, and me, buy it. It’s the right tone between thriller and improbable fantasy.”
Foster also has picked up the rights for the second book in the series, BLACK SITE, which Farnsworth is still writing.
