Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is said to be circling Universal Pictures second attempt at Van Helsing, reports Twitch. The sides have “engaged in some early and still relatively casual conversations about Universal’s upcoming Van Helsing with the sides expressing a mutual interest in doing the project with one another,” says the site.
Uni recently announced a two-year first-look production deal with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, and their K/O Paper Products banner. The duo will kick off their new relationship with Universal by reimagining titles from the studio’s library including Van Helsing and The Mummy remake, to be helmed by Len Wiseman.
Tom Cruise attached to star in and produce the new Helsing.
The titular character was inspired by the Dutch vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing from Irish author Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula.”
