Vlad The Impaler Movie Gets Rewrite

Yeah, vampires are cool and everything but Twilight has ruined them for me a little bit. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel folks: there are two Dracula movies coming our way.

The Hollywood Reporter announced today that the writer of The Crazies, Scott Kosar, is reworking a script about Vlad The Impaler, who many will know went on to be known as Dracula.

Kosar is re-jiggering the original script that was written by Green Street star Charlie Hunnman which will cover Vlad’s early years.

Anthony Mandler will be helming the project in his feature film debut but will be going head-to-head with Alex Proyas’ Dracula: Year Zero, starring Avatar’s Sam Worthington.

At least we know that given Kosar’s past work, we know it won’t be mopey teenage vampires going on about their pathetic love lives. He penned The Amityville Horror remake, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake and The Machinist so hopefully the new film will be nice and dark.
