The series centers on a strong, yet flawed, 17-year-old female who confronts her world with grit, determination, and lots of moxie. Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half human/half vampire and guardian of the Moroi, a race of peaceful and magical mortal vampires who can walk in the daylight, survive by feeding off willing blood donors, grow old and die. Hidden deep in the forests of Montana is St. Vladimir’s Academy, where Moroi and dhampirs learn to take their place in Moroi society. Rose must master her inherited abilities as a dhampir and earn the approval of the Royal Council, as guardian to Princess Lissa, her best friend and sole heir of one of the twelve Royal families of Moroi. Rose and Lissa share a mysterious psychic bond and sense of destiny, but first they must survive an intense social scene, politics and the physical challenges of Moroi life at the Academy. Outside the sanctuary of St. Vladimir’s waits their greatest threat of all, the Strigoi, a race of bloodthirsty immortal vampires and predators of the Moroi.As for the above mentioned cast – Lucy Fry is attached to play Lissa, a vampire princess who has been on the run but is brought back to St. Vladimir’s Academy. Danila Kozlovski will play Dimitri, who is assigned to guard Lissa and is Rose’s love interest. And Rose – well, as you already guess, Zoey Deutch is set to play her. Susan Montford, Don Murphy, Deepak Nayer and Michael Preger will produce with Stuart Ford executive producing, and Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters should start shooting this summer. As usual – with every new update on this one – we’ll be back, so stay tuned!
