Ultraviolet rip-off due August 2005

Kurt Wimmer, of Equilibrium and The Thomas Crown Affair (screenplay) fame, is in the process of ripping off a brilliant british miniseries by Joe Ahearne, Ultraviolet (1998). This movie version of the miniseries is still about vampires, with what sounds like similar vampire theories.

The original series had very good performances by Jack Davenport, and Australian Philip Quast (also in Sons and Daughters and Play School during the early 80s).

The word 'vampire' was never used in the original series. They were instead referred to as "Code 5's" or "leeches".
