Jun Ji-Hyun in Blood: The Last Vampire

Korean actress Jun Ji-Hyun stars as Saya in the live action remake of the Japanese anime, Blood: The Last Vampire. The remake, due out in 2008, follows Saya as she hunts down killer bat-like beings throughout Japan, following WWII. The cunning and skillfull Saya, herself, is one of the last living original vampires. My prediction is that Jun Ji-Hyun (who has chosen the English name "Gianna Jun"--ugh) will make an appearance at next summer's Comic-Con in San Diego.

The impressive, if not bloody, trailer for the original Blood: The Last Vampire can be seen here.
