Danny Huston is set to star in the horror, 30 Days of Night for Columbia Pictures.

The flick is an adaptation of the comic book that takes place in an Alaskan town where 30 days of continual winter darkness attracts a horde of hungry vampires, says The Hollywood Reporter. Josh Hartnett and Melissa George already are cast as a husband-and-wife sheriff team who try to save the town's residents; Huston will play the leader of the vampires.

30 Days of Night is currently shooting; an October 2007 release has been set.
