The plan is for the new film to tie to the planned the new Universal Monsterverse that will officially launch in 2017 with "The Mummy." Abraham Van Helsing was created in 1897 by Bram Stoker for his novel Dracula. The arch enemy of the undead count, Van Helsing was both a fount of occult knowledge and a fearless vampire slayer. Over the past century, the Van Helsing character has been reimagined time and again.
