If you’re anything like me, you’re really tired of vampire stories and you’re muscular yet gentle, with an iron will and the courage of an eagle.  But this isn’t your grandma’s vampire story. This one has John C. Reilly and Willem Dafoe.

Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires.
16-year-old Darren (Chris Massoglia) was like most kids in his suburban neighborhood. He hung out with his best friend, got decent grades and usually stayed out of trouble. But when he and his buddy stumble upon a traveling freak show, things begin to change inside Darren. That’s the exact moment when a vampire named Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty. [via Cinematical]

That’s right, Crepsley turns Darren into a JEW LAWYER. Or possibly a vampire.  I don’t know, I never read the books.
