I bet a lot of you didn’t know that in 1931, when Universal released the famous Dracula with Bela Lugosi, that they also released the same movie in Spanish, with a totally different Dracula on hand! Well Focus Features has come up with a unique film, which sort of makes me think of Shadow of the Vampire, read on for the interesting details…
Glenn Williamson’s Back Lot Pictures has set up “Senor Dracula” at Focus Features, with Cheech Marin to helm, and has optioned J. Robert Lennon’s novel “The Funnies.”
Marin’s concept for “Senor Dracula” centers on the Spanish-language version of the 1931 horror classic “Dracula,” which was filmed at Universal Studios concurrent with the original English-lingo version — at night, on the same sets. “Senor Dracula” will focus on a romance between an American actor and a Hispanic actress. Focus is seeking a writer for the project.
