Though the world has since moved on to Frankensteins and witch hunters, Universal continues to fuss over vampires, now hiring Luke Evans to play the lead in their long-gestating Dracula. Three years ago the film was going under the title Dracula: Year Zero, and it had Sam Worthington attached to provide the unmemorable face of evil, but while its title and guy from Clash of the Titans have changed, the concept remains the same. The script focuses on Dracula's transition into the undead, when, to save his family, a young prince sacrificed his soul and started wearing a lot of capes. The Crow director Alex Proyas was once attached to direct, though now the project will mark the feature debut of commercials director Gary Shore. THR reports the film will present "a historical-oriented origin story." But hopefully nothing that will conflict with the historical-oriented vampire origins of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, because if it does, who do we trust?
