Fresh off their surprisingly good modern take on The Invisible Man; Blumhouse Productions is reportedly now developing a modern-day version of Dracula according to Variety. The classic Universal character has been made into numerous film and TV adaptions with most recently appearing on a Netflix series. However, now it seems horror-centric Blumhouse Productions will be taking the reigns to develop films on the classic Universal Monsters after Universal Pictures failed to launch a cinematic universe with 2017’s The Mummy.
Jennifer Body’s Karyn Kusama is attached to direct the film; with Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay penning the script. Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay also worked with Kusama on Destroyer and The Invitation. It’s unlikely these characters will share the same cinematic universe as previously thought.
Dracula has no set release date
