Karyn Kusama Set to Direct ‘Dracula’ at Universal

That didn’t take long, the next films in a contemporary shared Monster Universe are already being planned and though many are only early on in development, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Karyn Kusama has been selected to direct Dracula with Blumhouse Productions and Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay co-writing the screenplay.

After a few misfires with 2014’s Dracula Untold and 2017’s The Mummy, The Invisible Man hit the nail on the head this year by receiving very positive reviews and high box office return for Universal Studios with returning to its catalog of classic monsters.

Recently Dracula has appeared on the small screen with BBC and Netflix’ mini-series and the upcoming ABC series The Brides which is a modern rendition of Bram Stoker’s novel based on three female vampires.

Although no cast has been officially announced, there should be more updates very soon and who could don the cape and fangs of the Count.

Check back for more updates soon!

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
