Dominic Cooper Can’t Get Enough Vampires, Joins Up With ‘Dracula’

Universal’s Dracula (formerly Year Zero), has added Dominic Cooper to the cast (pictured above; Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Dead Man Down), Variety reports. It’s not yet known what role he’ll be playing.

Pic stars Fast & Furious 6‘s Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon. Gary Shore is 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.
