Ultraviolet

It seems that Kurt Wimmer - the writer+director of the very cool Equilibrium - is starting work on a new film called Ultraviolet.

Apparently it has nothing to do with the UK mini-series of the same name, and same premise!!?!? WTF is up with that? I'd sue his ass if he hasn't got the rights.. The TV show was of course very cool, understated, quiet, very British, I guess.. I get the feeling that this is a more run-of-the-mill action movie.. anyways.. The premise is that a part of humanity is infected with a virus that gives them superhuman abilities and that tensions between normal humans and the "vampires" break out into war (hello! X-Men anyone?).

OK, so the movie sounds like it's a derivative of 10 different movies of recent times (throw in Underworld into that mix as well), but I have SOME faith in Wimmer from his past films.. Plus he's cast Milla Jovovich, so it will probably be worth seeing just for that.
