Updated! Dracula: Year Zero Gets Green Light, Director & Star


Dracula: Year Zero has been around for years.  I mean, years.  I’ve been writing about it here at Shock since 2008.  And, much like another Dracula-themed project that never dies – The Last Voyage of the Demeter – this one has seen talent come and go.  But it appears Dracula: Year Zero is finally moving forward.

The Hollywood Reporter says Universal “quietly” gave the green light to producer Michael De Luca and he has locked a director and star.

According to the site, Luke Evans is going to play Dracula for director Gary Shore (Alex Proyas was previously attached to helm).

This tale finds Dracula making a dark pact to save his wife and child.  He becomes a vampire and ultimately uses his powers of darkness to fight his enemies.

Evans will be seen in next month’s No One Lives.

Update: THR adds the film is simply being called Dracula now….
