And the new Dracula is… the Gladiator?

July 17th, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

It’s that time again when Dracula becomes fashionable once more…

Hostel director Eli Roth is rumoured to be up for directing the new ‘Harker’ movie, a Dracula reimagining where Jonathan Harker will be a police inspector trying to hunt down Dracula. The hope is this will be a franchise in the vein of Sherlock Holmes but with no confirmed names attached, everything is still up in the air.
Personally, I think it’s a great concept and now Roth’s fearless approach to scare audiences he would be just the man.
Now Russell Crowe’s name has appeared in the arena but not for the titular character but the old sweet fangs himself – Dracula. And now it’s been mentioned I can see it. This is a movie and pairing that has great potential and if these names are confirmed then I for one can’t wait. Someone sign these people up please.

He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
