Chloé Zhao Is Set To Direct A Western ‘Dracula’

Chloé told to Variety that “I’ve always been fascinated by vampires and the concept of the Other they embody,”

“I’m very excited to work with Donna [Langley], Peter [Cramer] and the team at Universal to reimagine such a beloved character.”

First created by Bram Stoker in his 1897 gothic horror novel, Dracula — a count who lives in the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania — has tantalized readers and audiences for over a century. The vampire was famously played by Bela Lugosi in the 1930s, Christopher Lee and Frank Langella in the 1960s and 1970s, and Gary Oldman in the 1990s. Universal’s most recent attempt to reboot the character, “Dracula Untold,” starred Luke Evans in 2014 and earned a tepid $217 million worldwide.
