Corbin Nash has been a movie long in planning, but it looks like it will start filming by the end of the month. Written by brothers Ben and Dean Jagger along with Christopher P. Taylor, Corbin Nash is set to be directed by Ben and to star Dean in the titular role. The story is the age old tale of a child whose parents are murdered so he becomes a cop in order to track down his parents' murderer, but this time there's a twist – the cop is murdered and returns as “the ultimate killer”. In an early interview about the film, Ben Jagger described Nash as a “down and dirty character with all of his flaws and imperfections to show his humanity is still within. An anti-hero the audience could get behind, despite the fact he is a monster”. This is a far cry from the more recent vampire depictions, which Ben described as “ pretty people with fangs falling in love”, and is a welcome change to the vampire genre.

Corbin Nash has slowly been acquiring a strong cast in preparation for filming. In addition to Dean Jagger, genre veterans Bruce Davison (Willard), Rutger Hauer (The Hitcher), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), and Corey Feldman (Tales From The Crypt Presents Bordello of Blood [in which he also played a vampire]) are attached to the production.

Davison will play Nash's stepfather Jack, while McDowell and Hauer will play The Blind Prophet and a mysterious stranger respectively. Feldman, meanwhile, moves from vampire killer to cross-dressing vampire, and Richard Wagner, who is also one of the producers, will be playing Feldman's boyfriend.

The first feature from StarTree Productions, Corbin Nash promises to make vampires tough again. As Ben puts it, “I plan to film this project with more of a subjective style of shooting to give it a gritty Indie edge, which supports the narrative and the main characters attributes.” This is good news for folks tired of Edward Cullen (Twilight), Bill Compton (True Blood), and other vampire lovers (Feldman's and Wagner's characters notwithstanding), a trend that horror fans hope will burn itself out sooner rather than later.
