Ronny Yu Talks 'Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash'

September 21, 2006 -- In an interview with ComingSoon.net about his forthcoming "Blood: The Last Vampire", director Ronny Yu added some info about a possible "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash." Yeah, they've been talking about it, and they even talk about bringing Ash [from Sam Raimi's Evil Dead" movies] into the equation, and I thought it's terrific. It's almost like an updated version of "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly." If they really want to do it and they want me to do it, I'd love to do it. It would be a lot of fun."

Ronny Yu to Make 'Blood'

Sept. 18, 2006 -- Ronny Yu, director of horror sequel classics "Freddy vs. Jason" and "Bride of Chucky" spoke up about plans to make the Japanese anime horror flick "Blood: The Last Vampire" into a live-action film. Yes, we're actually doing it. Probably we'll start in October/November. Right now I'm working with a visual effects supervisor designing all the monsters, he told Aint It Cool News. "I think I want to try reinvent this genre... You know, every time you talk about vampire or whatever, you have this blue/gray tone and stuff like that. I'm going to take a multimedia approach to it, with color and all that.

"And also, I changed the setting of the story. In the animation, it was set in the 1960s. Now I move it to 1948 in Tokyo, just after the bombing, just after the war. I think it will look visually stunning because of the ruin of the city and all the death all around the city. Then the story happens right in the middle. There's a US Army camp because Japan at the time is occupied by the US. So, you have this apple pie, good old wholesome American army camp and surrounding it is death and ruin. ...

"We're going to be shooting some Tokyo and some in Melbourne... there's an abandoned army camp there with all the supplies there, like jeeps and planes and all that. ... Again I'm doing it with Bill Kong, my producing partner. We financed it independently ourselves."
