Kelly Hu, star of the upcoming vampire film Jade, told SCI FI Wire that a script is being written for producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Hulk), based on the Chaos! Comics series. "The comic is actually about a [4,000-year-old] vampire who lives in China, and she has incredible martial-arts skills," Hu said in an interview. "She has a really interesting sidekick, a woman named Silence, who doesn't speak. And, like, a little goblin who follows her around as well."

Hu added that the film has no production start date yet. "I don't know exactly how it's going to be written, because a lot of this stuff changes when it comes to script," she added. "It's being written now. All of this stuff is real, real preliminary."

Ronny Yu (Freddy vs. Jason) is still attached to direct, Hu added. "I think so," she said. "I'm not sure. I think he's still planning on doing it, as far as I know." Hu next appears as Lady Deathstrike in the upcoming X-Men sequel, X2, which opens May 2.
