MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ, MATT DAVIS & MICHAEL MADSEN BECOME VAMPIRE HUNTERS IN "BLOODRAYNE"
Actors join Ben Kingsley & Kristanna Loken in film adaptation of BloodRayne Video Game
(Vancouver, BC) ? Michelle Rodriguez, Matt Davis and Michael Madsen have each been cast in the new film, BloodRayne, based on the popular video game of the same name, joining the previously announced Sir Ben Kingsley and "Terminator 3" star Kristanna Loken. BloodRayne is written by Guinevere Turner ("American Psycho") and will be directed by Uwe Boll. Shawn Williamson of Vancouver-based Brightlight Pictures and Dan Clarke are the producers.
Similar to the popular video game, the film is based on a sexy, supernatural huntress named BloodRayne (Loken), who is an unholy breed of human and vampire. She is an explosive force with gymnastic dexterity and has an intense lust for blood and action. Trained by a secret agency called the Brimstone Society which hunts down and eliminates supernatural threats around the globe, BloodRayne is confronted by the deadliest of all creatures, the powerful and evil Kagan, King of the Vampires (Kingsley). Davis portrays Sebastian and Madsen is Vladimir, two of the greatest vampire hunters. Rodriguez plays Katarin, who runs the local Brimstone Society chapter.
BloodRayne is set in 18 th century Romania, where the film will actually begin principal photography later this month. The BloodRayne video game debuted in 2002 and a sequel is set for release this October.
Rodriguez is perhaps best know for "Girlfight," though her other credits include "SWAT," "The Fast and the Furious" and "Resident Evil." Matt Davis has been featured in "Blue Crush," "Legally Blonde," "Pearl Harbor" and "Tigerland." Michael Madsen has extensive credits, including "Kill Bill, volumes I and II," "Narc" and "Reservoir Dogs."
