With "Twilight" so successful, there has been an influx of vampire-themed films the past few years in Hollywood. While many of them haven't been great, such as "Daybreakers" and "Vampires Suck," the films have potential to take a tried and true genre and turn it on its head, much like "Let Me In," the remake of the Swedish film "Let the Right One In."

According to Variety, another vampire novel is getting the adaptation treatment, with Abigail Breslin and Julianne Moore teaming up for the gothic vampire thriller "Innocence."

The story follows a recently bereaved teenage girl who finds herself the focus of everyone's attention at her elitist private school, which is home to a nest of vampires. The story is adapted from the original novel of the same name by Jane Mendelsohn.

While this film could easily turn into a "Twilight" copycat, the fact that Breslin and Moore are attached is a huge positive sign for the project. Both actresses have been nominated for Academy Awards (Moore multiple times) and Breslin, along with actresses like Chloe Moretz and Haliee Steinfeld, has proved that some of Hollywood's most talented actors are just kids.

"Innocence" could turn out to be a surprise hit considering it's talent and interesting plot. Shooting will kick off late this summer.
