‘Vampire Academy’ Production Team Launches Indiegogo Campaign

The Vampire Academy movie production team have launched a crowdfunding venture on Indiegogo.

They hope to raise $1.5 million to adapt the second installment of Richelle Mead’s young adult series, Frostbite. The campaign will run until September 05, 2014. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s an excerpt from the message that screenwriter Piers Ashworth posted on the Indiegogo page:

“We have to get this movie made. We have to meet Adrian and understand the new dimension he brings to the story. We have to experience the changes Rose undergoes as she battles the ultimate foe at the same time as coming to terms with her relationships (including the one with her mother). We have to see the battle of wills in the basement – and the surprise of Mia’s use of water magic to incapacitate Isaiah. We have to see the Strigoi for what they really are. Please help make that happen.”

The first film of this franchise, Blood Sisters, was released on Valentine’s Day this year. The cast included Zoey Deutch as Rose Hathaway and Lucy Fry as Lissa Dragomir. Who would you cast as the dashing Adrian Ivashkov?
