Dracula Once Again to be Re-Imagined in Film

Dracula by Bram Stoker
More information about the book

Deadline|New York is reporting that Warner Bros. is set to acquire a script for the film Harker, featuring the Scotland Yard detective Jonathan Harker, a character in the classic novel Dracula by Bram Stoker, on the trail of the infamous vampire. (Harker is a solicitor in the book, hence the film will be a "re-imagining" of the tale.) Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan, Unknown) is set to direct a screenplay written by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, the latter having just sold his first thriller, Hemlock Grove, to Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

Bram Stoker wrote Dracula in 1897, the character being the source of countless retellings and interpretations since then.
