The famed independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch could be taking his latest production, a vampire love story, on the road to film some scenes in Detroit, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The Free Press reports that the director of quirky, beloved films like 2005's "Broken Flowers" and 1995's "Dead Man" was recently spotted in the city where he will plans to shoot some scenes for his upcoming production “Only Lovers Left Alive”.

Deadline Detroit writes that the filmmaker has been scouting out the Gothic-style mansions of the city's Brush Park neighborhood as potential backdrops for his new drama.

Michelle Begniche of the Michigan Film office told the Free Press that the film's producers have applied for a Michigan film incentive, but that the request has yet to be approved.

While it's unclear what Jarmusch thinks about Detroit, he already seems to be a fan of the city's music history. The director was reportedly working on a documentary about The Stooges and released a remix of The White Stripes single, "Blue Orchid."
