Story of ‘Vlad’ the Impaler Won’t Touch on Vampirism

Here’s a little something that caught me off guard and still has me pondering how it will turn out; screenwriter Charlie Hunnam (and star of “Sons of Anarchy”) revealed to Entertainment Weekly that his script for Vlad has NO vampires in it. Instead, the feature will focus on the real-life story of Vlad the Impaler that inspired Bram Stoker. “As the script stands now, we don’t touch on vampirism,” he reveals to EW. “That was my one non-negotiable area when we were developing it, and thankfully, nobody suggested that we should delve into it at the end. But you can clearly see the things that Bram Stoker took…. Vlad was such a brutal man, and the trick is to make him sympathetic.” Talk about this below and read the full interview by clicking the link above. Announced earlier this week, Anthony Mandler will be directing the film for Summit Entertainment.
