Blood Kiss, set in 1940s Hollywood, is the classic film noir tale of a sexy jazz singer in distress and a Private Investigator who takes on a little more than he bargained for when he discovers this case involves the murder of multiple Vampires.
Award-winning writer/producer Neil Gaiman will be making his acting debut in the film as eccentric movie director, “Julian Cross”. “I'm willing to pretend that the prospect of acting doesn't terrify me in order to help Michael Reaves make his film.” said Gaiman, known for his work on “Dr. Who”, “The Sandman,” “Coraline”, “American Gods,” and more.
Actress Amber Benson is slated to play the lead role of “Ruby Day”, the sexy jazz singer in Blood Kiss. “Michael has been a great supporter of not just his friends, but many, many others in the industry, with his encouragement, advice and his hands-on help,” said Benson who is known for her work on the series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” “Supernatural,” and others, “but now is our turn to give back and make Michael’s dream of making his passion film a reality.”
Michael Reaves, who is in the advanced stages of Parkinson’s disease, is known for his prolific writing and producing which included scripts for such shows as “Batman The Animated Series”, “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Sliders,” “The Flash,” “Father Dowling Mysteries,” “He-Man”, “Dungeons and Dragons”, “Gargoyles” and many others.
