Universal recruits The Knights Templar

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 .
