Ice-T is a bloodsucking gangster in first trailer for Bloodrunners

Rapper turned actor Ice-T is exchanging his Law & Order: SVU cop badge for some pointy fangs and a gangster hat in new horror period movie Bloodrunners, and we have the first trailer and poster.

Co-written and directed by Dan Lantz (Bloodlust Zombies), the low-budget movie is a Speakeasy Pictures and IMPULSE-FX production that takes place during the Prohibition era. Bloodrunners (slated to be released sometime in early 2017) sees Ice-T in the role of a ruthless gangster boss who goes against a corrupt cop named Jack Malone, played by Michael McFadden (Gotham, The Networker). But what begins as a turf war turns into something much more horrific when the cop realizes he’s not facing off some good ol’ gangsters of the human kind, but deadly bloodsucking vampires! The trailer is a little bit sexy (of the NSFW variety) and a little bit bloody. Check it out below, and let us know what you think.

In 1933, Prohibition has proven a booming enterprise, where average citizens break the law, hide in the shadows and operate at night. The lust for alcohol has even lined the pockets of corrupt cops like Jack Malone (Michael McFadden). He collects a ‘luxury tax' from every bootlegger and scofflaw in the small community he has sworn to protect. While shaking down the newest speakeasy in the local underground, Jack uncovers a clan of vampires hell bent on taking over the town. Now Chesterfield (Ice-T), an ancient vampire, and his horde must hide their secret at any cost. The bloody result leaves several killed and others trapped, facing a fate worse than death. With no where else to turn, Jack joins forces with a busboy and crazy preacher to save the innocent and make a final stand against Chesterfield and his vampires.
