Russell Crowe Might Hunt Dracula

There are so many vampire things being made right now, it was only a matter of time before one pulled in Russell Crowe to lend the undead some of the dignity perhaps lost sometime between Twilight and the upcoming action movie about vampires fighting off Lincoln. The Oscar-winning actor is reportedly in talks with Warner Bros. to join, Harker, a film that re-imagines Bram Stoker's Dracula from the perspective of lawyer Jonathan Harker--except, as part of the deeper re-imagination process, Harker also isn't a lawyer anymore. Now he's the Scotland Yard investigator charged with investigating vampire murders, because that sounds way cooler. I have heard of both vampires and this Scotland Yard place! The Lee Shipman & Brian McGreevy-penned script is being directed by Unknown/Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra, who has some free time now that his Akira has been essentially shut down. I guess you could say this vampire rose from the grave of Akira! But let's never say that. Let's just practice yelling "Har-KER!" in the way the cranky old police chief will, so that we get used to hearing it.
