The Vampires Assistant aka Cirque Du Freak Release News

Universal Pictures’s let us know that upcoming film The Vampire’s Assistant (formerly titled “Cirque Du Freak”) will now be released on Friday, October 23, 2009. “The Vampire’s Assistant” by director Paul Weitz stars John C. Reilly, Ken Watanabe, Chris Massoglia, Josh Hutcherson, Patrick Fugit, Ray Stevenson, Michael Cerveris, Frankie Faison, Jane Krakowski, Orlando Jones, Kristen Schaal and Salma Hayek.

Synopsis: The Vampire’s Assistant tells the frightening tale of a boy who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.

14-year-old Darren (Chris Massoglia) was like most kids in his suburban neighborhood. He hung out with his best friend, got decent grades and usually stayed out of trouble. But when he and his buddy stumble upon a traveling freak show, things begin to change inside Darren. That’s the exact moment when a vampire named Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty.

Stay tuned to for the latest from “The Vampire’s Assistant”.

    Cirque Du Freak was a great series. I’m so happy that they’re making it into a movie-it’s a good change from romantic horror.
    This is classical horror, with blood and combat, not dances and kisses.

    i am mad that there not going by the book.
    but the movie is still gonna be great b/c i have read the series a bunch of times and i love it.
    Mr. tall i don’t think they picked the best actor but his deep and sullace voice makes him a good choice.
    i just want to see his girlfriend, police officer, and the princes but overall i cant wait!!
