So we have True Blood, Twilight, The Walking Dead, and Vampire Diaries but that’s not enough right? We need more shows focusing on the undead, and Starz knows it.
With the help of writer J. Michael Straczynski (Thor, Changeling, He-Man), and horror/action producers Rob Tapert (The Evil Dead, American Gothic) and Roy Lee (The Strangers, The Ring) they are developing Vlad Dracula.
The show will focus on Dracula’s age-old struggle, one faced by Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Brad Pitt’s Louis of Interview With The Vampire – to eat piles and piles of humans, or not.
Vlad: Prince of Wallachia, a real-life Romanian prince who died around 1476, faced leadership woes as well that inevitably led to the nickname “Vlad The Impaler.”
If only Kate Beckinsale and Hugh Jackman were there to keep things in order.
