The Power of Prayer

Alan Mruvka's Filmology Labs Entertainment is teaming with Grobman-Campbell Films to produce a remake of "Embrace of the Vampire," the 1994 cult pic starring Alyssa Milano that was produced by Mruvka. Erotic thriller is being financed by Lisa Hansen and Paul Herzberg of Cinetel Films along with Anchor Bay Entertainment, which is a division of Starz Media.

Like a supernatural "Fifty Shades of Grey," story follows a virginal college student who is introduced to a dark world of carnal desires after being seduced by a handsome vampire.

Sharon Hinnendael, who starred in Adam Rifkin's Showtime series "Look" and the indie pic "Rites of Passage," is set to take over the lead role of Charlotte, originally played by Milano.

"There's been a lot of interest lately to do a remake," said Mruvka, who founded E! Entertainment Television and recently launched Filmology Labs Entertainment.

"Embrace of the Vampire" has already started production in Vancouver.

Did we start a letter-writing campaign I didn't know about?
