Paramount Pictures registers VampiratesMovie.com domain name

Justin Somper

Vampire films have regained popularity with the help of books-to-movies like Twilight.

The first three films in the Twilight Saga — Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse — have grossed over $1.8 billion USD

Paramount Pictures, which once owned the rights to Twilight before Summit Entertainment, won’t be making the same mistake twice over a books-to-movies deal based on vampires.

The company registered the domain name VampiratesMovie.com on July 6, which could mean Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to Justin Somper’s Vampirates books and is planning to make a film. 

Here’s a look at the Whois record:

At the time of this post, I haven’t been able to find any news or blogs mentioning Paramount Pictures and Vampirates.

I’ve reached out to Justin Somper for comment and will update this post if I hear back.
