This is bad news.... seems Fox has sapped the life out of the final part of the Watch trilogy.
A crying shame, as these russian films were rather enjoyable.
No DUSK WATCH: It seems now that the sun has definitely gone down for DUSK WATCH, the third entry in Timur Bekmambetov’s popular NIGHT WATCH series of films that was initially announced for release in 2009. Questioned about the project at the press junket for his latest film, WANTED, the Russian director appears to no longer count DUSK WATCH among his future plans. “I don’t think so -for me, WANTED became my DUSK WATCH,” says the director, who also notes that it would be pointless to make what in essence would be his third film from the same material (Sergei Lukyanenko) in a row. “I don’t know what to do for now,” he adds. “We’ll see.”
Bekmembetov wouldn’t say whether the film could still be made without his involvement. The closing chapter in the proposed trilogy of films, DUSK WATCH would have followed up the successful second installment, DAY WATCH, which was in turn based on the second and third parts of Sergei Lukyanenko’s best-selling NIGHT WATCH novel - rather than in its follow-up, a book also titled DAY WATCH. The author’s third novel in the series was also titled DUSK WATCH (or TWILIGHT WATCH in the English-speaking world), but it was unclear whether that tome’s events would serve as the basis for the film.
But Bekmambetov isn’t leaving supernatural creatures behind, and shared some info on THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR, the horror/fantasy set during the Crusades that he’s expected to produce, also for Universal (see previous item here). “It’s a story about the Knights Templar and vampires,” he says. “The vampires are trying to be human again, and they’re looking for the Holy Grail. I think it’ll be very good - a very touching, romantic story about the undead.” (thanks to Fangoria.com)
