There’s been a little bit of doubt concerning whether or not Summit Entertainment’s latest take on the tale of everyone’s favorite bloodsucker Dracula, entitled Vlad, was going to happen. Good news came today, however, as the studio has tapped a writer to polish the film’s original screenplay. One who possesses some genre bite!
According to The Hollywood Reporter Scott Kosar (pictured right) has been brought on to work on the screenplay for Summit Entertainment’s Vlad. Actor Charlie Hunnam (“Sons of Anarchy”) wrote the original script, which takes an action-oriented look at Dracula, or Vlad the Impaler, as a young prince. Music video director and photographer Anthony Mandler recently came aboard to direct the project and will shepherd Kosar’s work on the screenplay.
Given Kosar’s writing history (The Machinist, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, The Crazies), we can confidently say that the Count is in very good hands.
