Two more have lined up to offer their blood to the new NBC miniseries based upon everyone's favorite O.G. vampire "Dracula," and we've got the scoop along with a necklace made of garlic to help keep the bloodsuckers at bay.
So what if the Super Bowl is on? We don't vacation. Especially when there's blood to be spilled. Speaking of which, THR reports that Irish actress Victoria Smurfit has been tapped to play Lady Jayne in the NBC's 10-episode series.
Though teenage vampires are no doubt the flavor of the month (year? decade?), only one bloodsucker has the staying power to keep on truckin'... or suckin' for that matter. I speak of course of the O.G. himself, "Dracula," and we have some more casting news for you!
We are still as giddy as schoolgirls regarding the news that the creator of "Carnivale" is bringing the world a new series about "Dracula." The possibilities are endless, we tell ya! In any event more casting news has hit the interwebs.
In what is easily the best news we've heard all damned day, Deadline has learned that Daniel Knauf, creator of the HBO series "Carnivale," has joined NBC’s upcoming 10-episode series "Dracula" as showrunner/head writer, working with series creator Cole Haddon.
NBC is looking like a horror fan's new best friend these days what with "Grimm", "Hannibal", and "Mockingbird Lane" all vying for our attention; but they're not resting on their laurels just yet. Word has come of a new 10-episode "Dracula" series in development at the network.
When you think of some of the most beloved and enduring characters in the history of the horror genre, Dracula has to be somewhere near the top. Certain entities are just synonymous with everything that we love as horror fans, and the original fanged fiend definitely fits the bill. The good news? We may be seeing a lot more of him.
Some tales never die. Such is the case with the dastardly duality of The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. While Jekyll was always the focus of the story, there's no denying Hyde was lots more fun, and now more of the dark side is being adapted for the big screen.
