You’d think that playing “The Vampire Diaries” villainous vampire-werewolf hybrid would keep Joseph Morgan busy, but the true artist never sleeps! Our favorite bad guy directed a short film, “Revelation,” over the summer, starring “Vampire Diaries” witch Persia White, best known from her role on “Girlfriends.” Now, Morgan has finally debuted the highly-anticipated thirty-second trailer.
The whole movie is about ten minutes long, and Morgan has submitted it for consideration in several festivals. In time, he plans to make the film available for fans to view online.
“Ultimately, the goal is to stream it online for free, but
unfortunately, for some of the festivals we submitted it to, like
Cannes, having it available online would immediately disqualify us, so
I’m trying to do everything in the right order,” Morgan tells us. “I do feel
a bit bad, because I tweeted about it so much and haven’t been able to
release it yet, but my hope is eventually to have a screening in Atlanta
and then to make it available for free online.”
Judging by the thirty-second sneak peek, we’re in for ten harrowing minutes when we finally get to see the whole thing. Just that final second of the trailer is going to haunt our nightmares tonight!
Morgan is currently gearing up to star in an upcoming backdoor pilot for his own “Vampire Diaries” spinoff, titled “The Originals,” which will see his character move to New Orleans’ supernatural hotbed, the French Quarter. The pilot will air April 25, 2013, as an episode of “The Vampire Diaries.”
