Sean Lennon scoring indie vampire movie

February 21, 2008 (Yahoo! News / Gregg Goldstein) -- Sean Lennon will score the indie vampire comedy "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead," which stars fellow celebrity spawn Jake Hoffman and Devon Aoki.


Hoffman (son of Dustin) plays an unemployed actor who gets his big break directing a bizarre off-Broadway version of "Hamlet." But there's a catch: The adaptation is written by a Romanian (John Ventimiglia, best known as chef Artie Bucco on "The Sopranos") who happens to be undead.

Aoki (daughter of Benihana steakhouse king Rocky Aoki) plays Hoffman's love interest. Ralph Macchio will play a mob boss who ends up fighting vampires. Jeremy Sisto plays a bumbling detective investigating the mysterious deaths surrounding the production. The project marks the feature debut of writer-director Jordan Galland.

Lennon scored the fantasy musical he starred in and co-wrote, "Friendly Fire," which featured appearances by Aoki, Asia Argento and Lindsay Lohan.

How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
