Dracula Year Zero: An Origins StoryGoon
Universal is once again setting out to sink their teeth into yet another Dracula film. Only this time it sounds very interesting and may be a nice companion film to all the fans of Todd Brownnings original masterpiece.
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have put together a spec script titled Dracula Year Zero. The script chronicles the epic origin of Dracula, weaving vampire mythology with the true history of Prince Vlad the Impaler. It depicts Dracula as a flawed hero in a tragic love story set in a dark age of magic and war, repositioning him more as a vengeful hero than the monster seen in Bram Stoker's classic novel.
Unfortuantely that is all that is known about the film so far. No director has been announced but we do know that Michael De Luca will be producing.
