Blood: The Last Vampire Live Action

Sources report that Universal Studios is planning to release Chris Nahon's live-action film adaptation of "Blood: The Last Vampire" anime film on 2,000 screens in North America March 2009. France's Pathe and Hong Kong's EDKO Film plan to distribute the film in other countries around the world simultaneously.

The live action film's setting is shifted slightly from the anime to 1948 at a United States Army camp in Tokyo, shortly after the conclusion of World War II during the American occupation of Japan. Saya will be a 400-year-old half human-half vampire who hunts vampires which are also her only source for food. Normally a loner, Saya forms a friendship with a young girl while preparing to battle Onigen, the highest ranking of the vampires.
