The 'Oblivion' actress has signed on to play headmistress Kirova in The Weinstein Company's movie adaptation of Richelle Mead's best-selling book series, reports Deadline.
The supernatural books centre on a young girl, Rose Hathaway, who develops an unbreakable bond with her vampire best friend, Vasilisa 'Lissa' Dragomir, while they study together at a special school which trains bloodsuckers on how to retain their humanity. As well as her friendship with Lissa, Rose finds herself in a forbidden romance with her hunky instructor Dimitri Beliko.
'Mean Girls' and 'Freaky Friday' director Mark Waters is set to helm the flick based on a script from Daniel Waters.
Six books in the 'Vampire Academy' series have been published since 2007, all of which have become New York Times best-sellers.
Kurylenko recently starred alongside Tom Cruise in hit sci-fi thriller 'Oblivion' and has just finished work on Michael French's 'Empires of the Deep'.
'Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters' will begin filming in late May.
