Warner Bros. has just acquired "Blood Wars," a radical reinvention of vampire mytholog.

In the Warner Bros. version of the story, vampires have control of the world and humans are their slaves. But humans infiltrate the vampire army and plan a rebellion. The project is based on a story by Chad St. John and Blacklight Transmedia. Dalan Musson is writing the script. Jon Berg is overseeing for Warner Bros.
