Russell Crowe Sharpening Stakes for DiCaprio's Harker

It tells the vampire story from the point of view of Jonathan Harker, who — instead of his traditional role as a lawyer — is now a Scotland Yard detective investigating the Count's string of grisly murders in England.

Look for more on this one soon!
