Sheesh. There are so many Dracula projects in development, I don’t even know what to call this project. Sony hasn’t given a title yet, so right now I’ll call it Dracula or Untitled Dracula Origin Story. This is not to be confused with Universal’s Dracula Year Zero or Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D. It’s also completely different from the Guillermo Del Toro/Chuck Hogan contemporary telling of the story
The Sony version is based off a sought-after pitch by Jason Keller and is intended to be a period-piece franchise starter produced by Joe Roth and Palak Patel.
Per Deadline, “Sony Pictures has acquired a pitch from scribe Jason Keller for a period origin story on the Dracula mythology that will be produced by Joe Roth and Palak Patel. I’m hearing the deal was high six figures against seven-figures. It becomes the latest in a growing list of films about the iconic vampire borne out of the legend of Vlad the Impaler. Insiders at Sony would only say the intention is to launch a period franchise… Keller most recently scripted Relativity Media’s ‘Mirror Mirror’”
Let’s hope this project is nothing like Mirror, Mirror.
