Saoirse Ronan sports a bright red hood and mysteriously bloodied fingers in the first still from Neil Jordan’s vampire flick “Byzantium”, which just wrapped up principal photography. Ronan was joined in the film by Gemma Arterton, Sam Riley and Caleb Landry Jones.
The film is now being vaguely summarized as revolving around “two mysterious and penniless young women who flee the scene of a violent crime and end up in a run-down coastal resort where the past they’ve been running from may finally catch up with them” but as we know, the two mysterious and penniless young women are actually mother and daughter, and oh yeah, vampires. Jones’ terminally ill teenager meets Ronan’s reluctant blooksucker and makes her question her way of life more than ever.
None of that is articulated in the first still, however. Deadline unveiled the image below earlier today, and no release date has yet been set.
