Heat Vision reports that producer Lucas Foster of Warp Films has picked up the rights to Christopher Farnsworth's vampire action novel, 'Blood Oath.' The book, published by Penguin/Putnam, hits shelves today.

'Blood Oath' follows the adventures of Nathaniel Cade, a vampire captured by the U.S. government during the Civil War and forced to swear an oath to President Andrew Johnson.

The idea of a vampire James Bond has the potential to be rather silly, but Foster was impressed that Farnsworth was able to pull it off.

"It's a big idea and it's an idea that in the wrong hands could have been cheesy," Foster said. "He did a very good job of making the reader, and me, buy it. It's the right tone between thriller and improbable fantasy."

Foster is hoping to get the project on the fast track and go into production by next year.
