After appearing in several for David Cronenberg pics, Sarah Gadon, pictured, is now ready to be wooed by the Prince of Darkness as she is in negotiations for the female lead in Universal’s Dracula (formerly Year Zero), Variety reports.
Pic stars Fast & Furious 6‘s Luke Evans with Gary Shore directing and Michael De Luca producing.
“The story is a mix of mythology and history as it follows the story of Prince Vlad, the inspiration for the Dracula character popularized by the Bram Stoker novel.”
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless wrote the latest draft of the script. VP of production Anikah McLaren and creative executive Jay Polidoro will oversee the project for Universal.
The film is moving fast with Universal giving it the greenlight and slating it for an Aug. 8, 2014 release.
