The New York Post reports that Hilary Swank has landed the role as the heroine being hunted by vampires in the movie version of the John Marks novel Fangland.

Swank's production company optioned the book by the former 60 Minutes producer.

It is set at a television news magazine called "The Hour," where bloodthirsty vampires roam the halls. The site has been informed that the film is a Dracula meets Network tale that reflects the sometimes hellish environment of the real 60 Minutes.
