Dracula Year Zero

I'm always up for a vampire movie (just like any type of time travel movies). Looks like Alex Pryoas (I, Robot and The Crow) is filming "Dracula Year One". From Dark Horizons:

  • Universal's origins tale about Vlad the Impaler and one of several films about the Romanian royal who inspired Bram Stoker's vampire tale.
  • Scribes Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless tell Variety that the goal was to show Vlad when he was still vital and to explore the fact that he's considered a hero in Romania for fending off the Turks.
  • The aim was too play off the horror and the sympathy you have for a character that "sells his soul to the Devil to save his kingdom and family." Michael De Luca produces.
