Vampires are coming to take a bite out of the Big Apple — in the latest Will Smith thriller about a mutant virus gone awry.

A Black Hawk helicopter flew over the city Wednesday for tests shots for the Warner Bros. film “I Am Legend.” Filming is expected to run until mid-March.

Smith plays the last human survivor in what is left of the city after a terrible virus is unleashed around the world, publicist Carol McConnaughey said.

The movie will feature a scene in which a Black Hawk lands on a barge near a Manhattan pier, according to the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting, which promotes and licenses moviemaking in the city.

The film is due in theaters in December.
