Update: Apparently now it’s just called Dracula.
The last time we wrote about Universal Pictures’ Dracula (aka Dracula Year Zero) was well voer a year ago when commercial helmer Gary Shore was in negotiations to direct the film. He’s still onboard (remarkable, actually – for a film in this kind if development) and now the movie has a lead in Luke Evans (The Raven), per THR. Even bigger news? The film has a green light and the project will start shooting this year!
“The script tells of a young prince who, when the lives of his wife and child are put in danger by a bloodthirsty sultan, risks his soul to save them, and in the process becomes the first vampire.”
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless wrote the latest draft of the script and Michael De Luca will produce through his Michael De Luca Prods. banner.
