First reported by the duders over at Badass Digest, Deadline now has the official word on Harker, the new vampire film to be directed by House of Wax, Orphan and Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra.
Warner Bros. is closing a deal to acquire Harker, a spec script by Lee Shipman & Brian McGreevy for a re-imagining of “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”. It focuses on Jonathan Harker as the Scotland Yard detective who is tracking Dracula, and the script sets up the sleuth as a potential new franchise character.
Harker will be produced by Appian Way partners Leonardo DiCaprio (who is not planning to act) and Jennifer Davisson Killoran, in a coproduction with Mad Hatter Entertainment. That label’s Michael Connolly will also be involved as a producer.
The writers are hot stuff. McGreevy wrote the supernatural mystery thriller novel “Hemlock Grove,” a book which just told to Farrar, Straus and Giroux. The novel teams an aristocratic vampire, a werewolf and Frankenstein’s monster, and places them in a Pennsylvania high school.
