Luke Evans will play Dracula in, uh, 'Dracula'
Lots of actors have played Count Dracula: Christopher Lee. Lon Chaney Jr. Gary Oldman. Now Luke Evans is joining the mix. You know, that guy who played Apollo in Clash of the Titans, and Zeus in Immortals. So here comes another CGI-laden movie for him to star in.
Universal has greenlit yet another vampire movie, this time an origin story for Bram Stoker's infamous count. It was originally called Dracula Year Zero, The Hollywood Reporter says, but it will now be called Dracula. What an original title!
A commercial director named Gary Shore will be making his first feature with this pic, which never bodes well. But hey, it's Dracula; You can name the good Dracula movies on one hand (and any flick with Keanu Reeves that isn't the first Matrix movie doesn't count).
