luke evans dracula gi 'Dracula': 'Fast & Furious 6's' Luke Evans to star in reboot

After his turn as the villain in “Fast & Furious 6,” Luke Evans already has his next big role lined up. THR reports Evans will take on the title role in Universal’s “Dracula.”
Originally titled “Dracula: Year Zero,” the movie tells the origin story of the fabled character, also known as Prince Vlad. When his family’s life is put in danger, he sacrifices his own soul to save them, becoming the first vampire.
The movie is being produced by Michael DeLuca, with Gary Shore, who previously worked in commercials, set to make his big screen directorial debut. “Dracula” isn’t new territory for Universal Pictures, who made the 1931 version, with Bela Lugosi in the now-iconic role. The studio has been looking to remake the film for years, with reports going as far back as 2006.
No release date has been announced for the “Dracula” reboot.
