MGM’s Vampire Buddy Action Flick ‘Blood Brothers’ Directed By Rza Eyes December Start In Pittsburgh

Aug 26, 2018

It looks like MGM’s vampire buddy comedy Blood Brothers based on the Dark Horse Comics limited run is finally coming together.

Nick and Tree have smoked opium with Genghis Khan, had orgies in Michelangelo’s studio, and even fronted a death metal band. But after a century of friendship, these inseparable vampire buddies are on the verge of splitting up. Terrible timing, as an apocalypse-obsessed villain is plotting an end to humanity.

Omega Underground has learned that Rza (Cut Throat City, Love Beats Rhymes, The Man With The Iron Fists, Iron Fist) will direct and plans to begin filming on December 1st in Pittsburgh.

They’ve also hired Cut Throat City cinematographer Brandon Cox.

In 2015, Tracking Board reported that Black Panther actor Michael B. Jordan was in talks to play the lead role of Tree.┬áJordan seemingly has an opening in his schedule as his drama Just Mercy will be wrapped by October 25th and Ryan Coogler’s Wrong Answer currently is without a start date.

Interesting enough, Pittsburgh happens to be the same location where MGM recently shot Creed 2 which stars Jordan.

The script has undergone multiple incarnations from Etan Cohen, Derek Connelly, Colin Tevorrow, and more recently with Rza taking a crack at it.

A release date for Blood Brothers has yet to be set by MGM.
