New Line will stake claim to ‘Vampire’

Role-playing game finds new blood in H'w'd

New Line Cinema has optioned feature rights for the role-playing game “Vampire: The Requiem” from White Wolf Publishing for producer Adam Fields. New Line’s eyeing the property as a potential franchise property.

“Requiem” introduces a contemporary horror universe that details the night-to-night life of vampires. Just as it’s up to the game players to create characters and plots, a screenwriter will also be charged with creating characters and a storyline for the adaptation.

“Requiem” and its ancillary role-playing products will be published Aug. 30 through White Wolf’s World of Darkness imprint.

“Requiem” is a successor to White Wolf’s 1991 “Vampire: The Masquerade.” That gaming property spawned more than 150 products and licensed materials, including several ActiVision videogames as well as the short-lived 1996 Fox series “Kindred: The Embraced.”

Luke Ryan and Magnus Kim oversee the pic at New Line. Roy Rocha brought the property to Fields.

Fields, who will produce “Requiem” under his first-look deal at New Line, is also producing “Josiah’s Canon” at 20th Century Fox.
