Jim Jarmusch-directed vampire love story is totally still happening and has added one more name to what is already an impressive cast.
Even more precisely, Anton Yelchin has joined the cast of Only Lovers Left Alive, which also stars Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska and John Hurt.
The story is said to revolve around ‘a centuries-long love affair between two star-crossed vampires’ (presumably Hiddleston and Swinton).
The film, which Jarmusch has described as a ‘crypto-vampire love story’ is set to begin shooting this summer in Germany.
Jarmusch told Screen Daily:
I’ve been imagining this film for years. I can’t wait to now realise it with these remarkable collaborators.
As for The Like Crazy star, Yelchin just wrapped the JJ Abrams-directed Star Trek sequel and will next be seen in the Dean Koontz novel adaptation Odd Thomas.
