Socialite Life have revealed this first batch of images of Gemma Arterton filming Neil Jordan’s latest vampire flick, ‘Byzantium.’ Byzantium’ is the story of a deadly pairing of a mother vampire, Clara (Gemma Arterton), and daughter, Eleanor (Saoirse Ronan). In addition to Arterton and Ronan, ‘Byzantium’ co-stars Sam Riley, Daniel Mays, Caleb Landry Jones, Uri Gavriel and Jeff Mash. Moira Buffini (Tamara Drewe, Jane Eyre) penned the script, adapting her own stage play. ‘Byzantium’ is Neil Jordan’s second vampire flick after the Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise-starring ‘Interview With the Vampire.’ Check out the synopsis for the play below, expect some changes from this outline.

Two young women arrive in a nameless British smalltown. Their names are not their own. They don’t declare their ages. Their relationship with each other is not clear. Are they sisters, as their assumed identities declare? Or are they mother and daughter? The eldest, Claire, takes a job in a pub. The youngest, Eleanor, goes to school.

During a truth exercise in her drama class, Eleanor confesses that she has been alive for over two hundred years and has survived by drinking human blood. Her classmates think she is utterly crazy and Mint, her teacher, puts her in touch with the school counsellor. She makes one friend, Frank, a boy who has been home educated and is as much of an oddity as Eleanor. He tries to get to the bottom of her vampire delusion, thinking it an epic and compelling psychosis. Why would anyone want to be undead?

Frank’s parents believe that Ella is an anorexic – why does she never eat? Eleanor has started to write her life story as a play. She describes Claire’s background as a prostitute in 19th century London and her own as a child in a private orphanage. Meanwhile, things are falling apart. People are disappearing. Are Eleanor and Claire vampires? Or are they troubled young women on the run?
