The official word on Jaume Collet-Serra’s vampire flick that Badass Digest first told you about over the weekend is finally here! Sharpen those stakes!
According to Deadline Warner Bros. is closing a deal to acquire Harker, a spec script by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, for a re-imagining of Bram Stoker’s Dracula with Collet-Serra at the directorial helm. It focuses on Jonathan Harker as the Scotland Yard detective who is tracking Dracula, and the script sets up the sleuth as a potential new franchise character.
Harker will be produced by Appian Way partners Leonardo DiCaprio (who is not planning to act) and Jennifer Davisson Killoran in a co-production with Mad Hatter Entertainment. That label’s Michael Connolly will also be involved as a producer.
Look for more on this one soon!
