The maker of "Coffee and Cigarettes" and "Broken Flowers" Jim Jarmusch is set to make a vampire movie starring Tilda Swinton, Michael Fassbender, and Mia Wasikowska, alongside John Hurt in the main role.

Jarmusch described the project to Screen Daily as a "crypto-vampire love story" set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers.

He said "I’ve been imagining this film for years. I can’t wait to now realize it with these remarkable collaborators.”

Jeremy Thomas and Reinhard Brundig will jointly produce through Recorded Picture Company and Pandora Films.

Thomas said: “As a friend, I’ve admired Jim’s films from the beginning, and I’m glad we’re finally working together.”

Although the movie doesn't have a title yet, it's set to start filming in Germany, Morocco and Detroit in early 2012.
