Tilda Swinton to Star in Jim Jarmusch Vampire Movie


Well, this is equal parts bizarre and thrilling: Jim Jarmusch — probably the last filmmaker we’d expect to get swept up in a mainstream trend — is making a vampire romance movie. We don’t know much about Only Loves Left Alive yet, except that it’s about an undead couple whose love has lasted centuries and stars the one and only Tilda Swinton, who was the best part of Jarmusch’s The Limits of Control and was probably born to play the world’s most glamorous, androgynous vampire. The rest of the cast isn’t too shabby either: John Hurt, Mia Wasikowska, and Tom Hiddleston have all signed on for the movie, which is set to film in Germany later this year. [via THR]
