Now that Legendary Pictures has teamed with Universal, they’re looking to bare their fangs for all to see by coming aboard the studio’s latest spin on Dracula. Yep, not even sunlight or crucifixes can keep the OG vamp’s popularity at bay! But wait! That’s not all!
According to Variety, Dracula is poised to become the first high-profile project for Legendary Entertainment, who will co-finance with the studio. The film, directed by Gary Shore and starring Luke Evans (pictured) and Dominic Cooper, is already in production and slated for release August 8, 2014. Legendary is in discussions with Universal executives about coming aboard the project.
Legendary is combing over Universal’s slate for a number of projects it will help fund under its new five-year co-financing and distribution pact with the studio and is considering co-funding the fourth installment of Universal’s planned reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, which, like Dracula, is an offering that would fit well with Legendary’s fan oriented DNA.
