Victor Salva to direct Purgatory...
Victor Salva has lined up a new horror film. The Jeepers Creepers helmer will direct Purgatory according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is about a washed-up sheriff and an English vampire hunter who team up to stop a clan of vampires from destroying an isolated, weapons-free town in the middle of the nowhere in 1892 New Mexico. Denis Faye wrote the film, which Mary Lambert was originally set to direct.
Salva is a controversial director in Hollywood due to his conviction in 1987 of one count of lewd and lascivious conduct, one count of oral sex with a person under 14, and three counts of procuring child pornography regarding a twelve-year old who had a part in one of his films. Salva pled guilty and did fifteen months in jail.
