Universal recruits The Knights Templar

It’s knights versus vampires!

The Knights Templar are one of those enduring legends that films and TV just can’t help but visit time and time again – even Indiana Jones has met one.

Now Universal has decided to put a horror spin on the tale – with the knights returning from the Crusades only to discover a marauding vampire army intent on destroying the Holy Grail. What to do? Suit up and kick some fang-happy butt, that’s what!

Writers Adam Torchia and Justin Stanley sold the script, and Night Watch/Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov will produce. There’s no word on a director or cast yet. Variety is on a quest for the details .
