A sales poster for Byzantium, starring Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace) and Saoirse Ronan (Atonement), the upcoming vampire film from Oscar-winner Neil Jordan has hit the web.

West End Films released the sales poster on their official Facebook (via Rope of Silicon), along with the following synopsis:

Eleanor and Clara, two mysterious and penniless young women, flee the scene of a violent crime and arrive in a run-down coastal resort. They try to find money and refuge along the tawdry seafront and in the dilapidated hotels.

Clara, ever-practical, sells her body. She soon meets shy and lonely Noel, who provides a roof over their heads in his seedy guesthouse, Byzantium. Clara, always looking towards the future, turns it into a ‘pop-up’ brothel.

Meanwhile Eleanor, the eternal schoolgirl, meets Frank, a kindred spirit who unwittingly prompts her to tell the truth about her life. She tells him that Clara is her mother; yet Clara is only a few years older. She says that she was born in 1804; yet she is just sixteen. She confesses that she must drink human blood to stay alive – and so must her mother. In the small, quiet town, people start to die.

And the past that the girls have been running from for so long, finally catches up with them – with astonishing consequences.

Take a look at the poster below:

The film also stars Sam Riley (On the Road), Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class), Johnny Lee Miller (Elementary) and Daniel Mays (Atonement). Neil Jordan previously tackled the Vampire genre with his Interview with a Vampire. Are you interested?

    Sounds interesting but I think the market is a little too over saturated for ANOTHER vampire flick (-_-)

    It’s a shame Twilight gave vampires such a bad name…I might be interested. Both the actors are good. I’ll wait for a trailer.
