Dario Argento's Dracula 3D Shooting in February

Dario Argento is in need of a good movie. With Mother of Tears and Giallo bombing with most fans, it's getting harder and harder to keep the faith. Still, we do as we're not ready to write the maestro off just yet, and next on his plate will be a 3D version of Dracula.

According to Variety Spanish film-TV businessman Enrique Cerezo has taken a minority co-production stake in Italian horror maestro Dario Argento's stereoscopic 3D adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

An Italy-France-Spain co-production led by Roberto Di Girolamo and Gianni Paolucci at Rome-based shingle Multimedia Film Prods., Dracula 3D also teams French producer Sergio Gobbi's Les Films de l'Astre.

The English-language pic is set to go into production from February in Hungary.

"My Dracula will be a film full of feeling because Dracula is also sentimental," Argento previously said. "Dracula loves, hates with strength, appeal and resolution, which reflects my way of making films. Besides Dracula, I'm also fascinated by the character of Mina, the woman he loves desperately more than anything else, for which he will sacrifice himself."

Argento also promises that his telling of the classic tale "will be a bloody, strong film."

Lord, let's hope so! Dig it below!

Like Wes Craven he might want to call it a day.

Some artists get better with time and experience, others just burn out.

No one needs a tired director doing a tired version of a tired story. It all just makes me tired.
