Talk about under the radar… to little or no fanfare Universal greenlit the long talked about flick Dracula: Year Zero, and we even have a star ready to bare his fangs as the title character. Read on for details.
THR reports that Luke Evans (pictured; Fast and Furious 6, The Immortals) has signed to topline in Dracula: Year Zero, now known simply as just Dracula, Universal’s dramatic horror movie telling an origin story of the most famous of vampires. Michael De Luca is producing the project and hopes to start shooting later this year. Commercials helmer Gary Shore is making his directorial debut on the picture.
The script tells of a young prince who, when the lives of his wife and child are put in danger by a bloodthirsty sultan, risks his soul to save them and in the process becomes the first vampire. More as it comes.
