Another actor is heading to Transylvania to take part in Universal’s latest tale of the Count, Dracula (formerly Dracula Year Zero), and somewhere out there Borat is waiting patiently to capture his tears in a tiny bottle.
Deadline reports that Zach McGowan (“Shameless,” “Black Sails”) has signed on to “play a character called Shkelgim, a gypsy chief.” He’ll star opposite Luke Evans (Dracula) in the flick along with Sarah Gadon and Dominic Cooper. Look for Dracula in theatres on August 8, 2014. Universal’s dramatic horror movie tells the origin story of the most famous of vampires. Michael De Luca is producing the project, and 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.
