There's been a little bit of doubt concerning whether or not Summit Entertainment's latest take on the tale of everyone's favorite bloodsucker Dracula, entitled Vlad, was going to happen. Good news came today, however, as the studio has tapped a writer to polish the film's original screenplay. One who possesses some genre bite!

You may recognize Charlie Hunnam as Jax in the FX drama Sons of Anarchy, but who knew the guy was also a budding screenwriter?

Ah, Summit Entertainment. They've tantalized a generation of teens and cougars with their vampire and werewolf laden tales in The Twilight Saga. Now they're looking to move on to the one vampire with some real bite -- Dracula. He had better not friggin' sparkle!
