In a THR article about how author Whitley Strieber has signed with the Gersh Agency, is news that Warner Bros is currently developing a remake of "The Hunger."
Striber wrote "The Hunger" early in her career and back in 1983, director Tony Scott (Man on Fire, Deja Vu) turned the novel into a vampire horror film, starring Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie and Susan Sarandon.
Plot: An Egyptian vampire lady Miriam subsists upon the blood of her lovers. In return, the men and women don't age, until Miriam had enough of them. That becomes the case with John and his life expectancy has been reduced to 24 hours. Desperately he seeks help from Dr. Sarah Roberts, who decides to get in contact with Miriam herself only to get caught up as well.
Last we heard, Scott was considering doing a sequel rather than a remake. And back in July, it was reported that Fredrik Bond (Hack/Slash, The Host) was attached to direct.

I just Netflixed "The Hunger", apparently the Scott brothers did a TV series as well! Terrence Stamp, Giovanni Ribisi, Eric Roberts, Anthony Michael Hall and Daniel Craig were in it! Anyone see this series? If so, should I watch it?
