Spain’s Cin TV is prepping Dracula Meets Stoker, a 3D docu feature about writer Bram Stoker, his family and the vampire myth, reports Variety.
The film takes in the true story of Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia — now part of Romania — a 15th century ruler better-known by his Romanian surname, Dracula.
Best-selling author Dacre Stoker (“The Un-Dead”), Stoker’s great-grand-nephew, is to helm, working from his new novel, “Dracula Meets Stoker.” The docu will be a kind of “making of” the novel, said a production company source.
The English-language docu is budgeted at $2.7 million — higher-bracket for Spain. Shooting is skedded for the fall.
It will open theatrically in 2012, to commemorate the centenary of the Irish gothic author’s death. Pic’s release will be accompanied by the publication of Dacre Stoker’s novel by Spain’s Iniciativa Mercurio, which partners on the project.
