Swank sinks teeth into ‘Fangland’

Das, Blumhouse team on Marks adaptation

Das Films and Blumhouse Prods. are teaming on an adaptation of John Marks’ novel “Fangland” that is shaping up as a star vehicle for Hilary Swank.

Sriram Das of Das Films and Jason Blum of Blumhouse will produce with Swank, who is in line to play a TV producer who travels to Romania for an interview with a notorious European arms dealer. Turns out, he’s a modern-day Dracula.

Marks is a former “60 Minutes” producer, and Mark Wheaton (“The Messengers”) turned in a first-draft adaptation of Marks’ novel just before the strike.

Tracy Underwood will exec produce.

Das Films is also developing an adaptation of the Paulo Coehlo novel “Veronika Decides to Die,” while Blumhouse is in post-production on “Accidental Husband.”

Swank is about to bow opposite Gerard Butler in the Richard LaGravanese-directed “P.S. I Love You.”
