Ian Somerhalder Returns for Another Vampire Drama With Netflix's 'V-Wars'

Ian Somerhalder will lead new Netflix series'V-Wars

According to Comic Book, IDW Entertainment President David Ozer cited Ian Somerhalder as the flawless choice for the V-Wars adaptation, revealing his work on The Vampire Diaries has offered the actor a "keen understanding" of the vampire genre. Ian Somerhalder will be playing the character of Dr. Luther Swann, whose best friend, Michael Fayne, contracts the virus and becomes a bloodthirsty vampire. Soon, more and more people are transformed, creating a divide in society: humans versus vampires. Swann is desperate to find out what is happening and why, while his friend Fayne becomes the leader of the vampire underground. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Somerhalder will star in the 10-episode series V-Wars, based on the IDW novel of the same name. V-Wars will explore the complicated rivalry between Luther and Michael as the series progress.

1-800-MISSING creators William Laurin and Glenn Davis are set as showrunners. Brad Turner (Stargate, Stargate Atlantis) will direct and executive produce the series. Eric Birnberg and Thomas Walden will executive produce for High Park, with David Ozer and Ted Adams for IDW Entertainment and James Gibb for Marada Pictures.

According to THR, another IDW adaptation, "Locke & Key", is waiting on a new home after Hulu passed on the pilot. The 39 year old actor directed three episodes of The Vampire Diaries during its seventh and eight seasons, so it will definitely be interesting to see how he brings both his acting chops and directing skills to his latest series.
