DesRochers to tackle vampires.

Canadian filmmaker Alain DesRochers (‘Nitro,’ ‘Wushu Warrior’) has signed up to direct the jungle action vampire flick ‘The Rising,’ reports Heat Vision.

Said to be inspired by pulp heroes Doc Savage and Tarzan, the spec script by Paul Sloan revolves around a team of mercenaries whose search for a missing person in the jungles of Cambodia becomes a descent into the heart of darkness as they confront the dark force of a vampire.

‘The Rising’ will be produced by Richard Salvatore and Bryan Brucks.
