Dominic Cooper is in talks to star in a new film version of Dracula alongside Welsh actor Luke Evans. (XPOSE)
Dominic Cooper is set to appear in the reboot of Dracula.
Variety reports that the British actor is in negotiations to co-star alongside Luke Evans in the Universal film.
The trade publication describes the movie as "a mix of mythology and history". The plot follows the origin story of Prince Vlad, the inspiration behind author Bram Stoker's Dracula character.
Dominic's last big project was also fang-related. He starred as assistant Henry Sturges in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
Welsh actor Luke will play the legendary vampire in the tale penned by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
"[Don't think] of the Dracula that Bram Stoker created," Luke recently told ComingSoon.net. "The Dracula that I'm going to be portraying is the origin of Dracula. It's about the man that became Dracula. Don't be too quick to think he's a bad guy. I'm just going to say that."
