Guillermo del Toro is bringing his vampire-heavy graphic novel The Strain to FX this July. Leading the creative team with del Toro is the author Chuck Hogan and writer/producer Carlton Cuse.
“‘The Strain’ is a high concept thriller that tells the story of “Dr. Ephraim Goodweather” (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.”
