New Dracula Film to begin shooting in Hungary
I realized I have not done any posts on vampires or Dracula in a while. Here's something news worthy.
Dario Argento's Dracula 3D fillm begins shooting in February
Italian director, Dario Argento, is promising his remake of the classic tale "Dracula" will be a "bloody, strong film."
Filming will begin in Hungary in February, then move to Italy. The Balsorano Castle has been scouted as a possible location.
This same castle has appeared in films such as "Bloody Pit of Horror, and Crypt of the Vampire--both Italian films.
Antonio Tentori has written the screen play for this version of Dracula and I read that he explores the more romantic as well as psycho dramatic elements of Bram Stokers story. The Bleeding Cool News reports that he doesn't hold back on the "allegedly inventive" gore scenes--one which apparently features wolves.
One thing that stands out is that the movie is set in the modern era.
No cast is announce as yet.
