Whatever Alex Proyas does next, I hope he got the whole “working with Nicolas Cage” thing out of his system. There’s nothing worse than wanting to be excited for a film (in this case Knowing) but not being able to because of its star.
So if he’s working on Dracula: Year Zero, hopefully there won’t be any Cages present. ”In the case of Dracula, the reason I got excited about the project is I read a particular script that puts the whole legend on its head in every conceivable way,” Proyas told STYD in a recent interview. ”[It] comes out with something that is both kind of an ode to Bram Stoker’s original Dracula, in that it’s kind of a prequel to that, but it also redefines the character to such an extent that I found it quite exciting, so that is very much a kind of reinvention of that character and it’s why I got excited about it.”
I know I’m behind whatever the man does, bad choice in leads notwithstanding, so hopefully this project will get off the ground soon. Keep it here for more Dracula: Year Zero updates as it comes to life!
