Proyas Talks Dracula: Year Zero

ON

What classic elements will appear?

Stakes, teeth and lots of blood. That’s what director Alex Proyas promises we’ll see in Dracula: Year Zero, Universal’s origin story of the famed bloodsucker. In talking with MTV, the Dark City helmer said his next project is “sort of the origin tale that mixes [the historical] Prince Vlad of Transylvania with sort of [fictionalized] Bram Stoker [take].” He’s none too keen about introducing Dracula’s revulsion to garlic, however.

The film – written by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless – is now in pre-production. For MTV‘s full interview, click here.
