Luke Evans to Star in Universal's 'Dracula' Reboot 3:45 PM PDT 4/8/2013 by Borys Kit (THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER)


Luke Evans has played a couple of Greek gods and even a musketeer, but now he is about to play the most god-like of literary characters.

In his first starring role for a studio, Evans has signed to topline in Dracula Year Zero, Universal’s dramatic horror movie telling an origin story of the most famous of vampires. (UPDATE: A Universal rep says the film will now be called simply Dracula.)

Michael De Luca is producing the project, which has quietly been greenlit and hopes to start shooting later this year. Commercials helmer Gary Shore is making his directorial debut on the picture.
