    BEIJING, Aug. 13 (Xinhuanet) -- Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley will play the evil ruler of an army of bloodsuckers in an upcoming film adaptation of the video game "BloodRayne."

    Set in 18th-century Romania, the movie chronicles the adventures of the title character, a half-vampire, half-human, who has the super strength of a monster but the emotions of a person. China Radio International reported Thursday.

    Kristanna Loken, the former model who starred in "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," will play the heroine, who must overthrow Kingsley's character in order to save the world from the living dead.

    The 47 million US dollars movie is set to begin filming in Romania later this month.

    The BloodRayne video game debuted in 2002 and a sequel is set for release this October.
