As pop culture's fascination with vampires continues, so does Russell Crowe's career.
The Oscar winner is reportedly playing the most famous blood sucker of them all in a
Twilight reboot reimagining of Bram Stoker's Dracula!
Harker follows Jonathan Harker — a Scotland Yard detective in this update — as he tracks down the evil count who sleeps during the day and stalks his victims at night. Warner Bros. is hoping to start filming next year and is currently in talks with Eli Roth to direct.
If they want a bloody horror movie, the guy who helmed Cabin Fever and Hostel is certainly the man to go to. However, it sounds like the studio may be innerested in more of an action pic. Sources say, "the script sets up the sleuth as a potential new franchise character."
Sounds like a supernatural version of Sherlock Holmes to us.
