Kurylenko bites into Vampire role

Olga Kurylenko has found a new role to sink her teeth into - drama Vampire Academy.

The Oblivion star is set to star in Mark Waters' big-screen adaptation of Rochelle Mead's teenage novels, Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters, reported Deadline.

The 33-year-old is in talks to play Kirova, the school's headmistress, alongside Zoey Deutch and Australian newcomer Lucy Fry as lead characters Rose Hathaway and Lissa in the film, which has been written by Daniel Waters.

The books - which have been best-sellers since they were released in 2007, and include two graphic novels - follow the story of 17-year-old Rose and her vampire best friend Lissa as they attend a special school. Russian actor Danila Kozlovski will play Dimitri, Rose's instructor.

Production is scheduled to begin in late May.

Olga, who stars opposite Tom Cruise in Joseph Kosinski's sci-fi epic Oblivion, will next star in 3-D action adventure Empires Of The Deep.
