Rutger Hauer to Play Van Helsing in Argento's Dracula 3D
It's good to see the great Rutger Hauer getting his claws into some tasty roles in today's film landscape. Next up for the hobo with a shotgun? The world's most well known vampire hunter!
According to ComingSoon.IT Hauer has landed the role of Van Helsing in Dario Argento's forthcoming Dracula 3D.
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 soon 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!
