Director Alex Proyas revealed that the July 29th release of this cut of the film will be about 10 minutes longer. Most of this time is made up with extra dialogue which, we’re told, helped further the development of both Rufus Sewell’s and Jennifer Connelly’s characters. It may not add to the overall visual flare of the film, but it does create a more complex story that was lost thanks to good ol’ test audiences.
Now for the real interesting news. Alex Proyas also hinted that he may be doing a Dracula feature in the future, but right now the only things listed on his upcoming slate are Knowing and possibly (PLEASE!) Silver Surfer. Mr. Proyas’ other future endeavors will be adapting a trilogy of books, though we’re not quite sure which three.
