Filmmaker to tackle vampire Western.

Heat Vision is reporting that Victor Salva (‘Jeepers Creepers,’ ‘Peaceful Warrior,’ ‘Powder’) has signed on to direct the indie vampire western feature ‘Purgatory.’

Set in 1892 in New Mexico, the plot centres on “a washed-up sheriff and an English vampire hunter who team up to stop a clan of vampires from destroying an isolated, weapons-free town in the middle of the nowhere.”

The script comes from Denis Faye (‘High Midnight’), with Nick Sternberg and Jesse Felsot of Cat and Mouse Films producing.
