Director talks Dracula Untold sequel plans

October 13th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Dracula Untold is skulking around cinemas at the minute and getting love it and hate it reviews and now director Gary Shore has been talking to Screenrant at NYCC about where he’d like the sequel to go:

“Personally, if I was to approach it again, I’d love to be able to explore something in between 1460s and modern day. There’s loads of history within Europe that you could just do something that we haven’t seen with a Dracula film.

“[Dracula Untold] doesn’t limit the scope or the possibilities of where you could go with the Dracula story, because it’s just over 450 years between what happens in Dracula Untold and what happened in Bram Stoker’s novel, and another 114 year or so after for a modern day take.

“I mean the idea of doing the Dracula Untold thing is because it is divorced from Bram Stoker’s novel. It’s the beginning seeds to be able to get the character there. If an audience really digs this and they go out and they enjoy the film, the next step obviously would be to take that character and start really delving into the true darkness of who Dracula is. Because when we find him in Bram Stoker’s novel, this is a tortured guy who’s been kept alive for hundreds of years. It’s perfectly set up to be able to try to explore.

“You might be able to stay in the present or move… I’d love to see a version where you could flip between the past and explore different parts in history.”

What do you think? Will it get a sequel? Does it deserve one? Universal monsters are now up and running…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
