Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Dracula. Luke Evans has signed on to play Dracula in his first major starring role. We've seen this Welsh actor play some larger than life characters, playing Apollo in "Clash Of The Titans," Zeus in "Immortals" and word on the street is he was considered for the role of Tom Buchanan in Baz Lurhman's "The Great Gatsby." You'll also see him play bad guy Owen Shaw in this summer's "Fast 6" and also will appear as Bard the Bowman in the next two The Hobbit movies. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming Universal movie which will be titled, shocker, "Dracula." The project was greenlit earlier this year and will be based on a Dracula origin story where a young prince risks his soul to save his wife and child. But his valiant efforts result in him becoming the first vampire. We'll have to wait and see how this all plays out. Michael De Luca is producing the movie, and Gary Shore will take his first turn directing a feature although we've seen his work before on commercials for big name clients like Adidas, EMI, and Warner Brothers. So will Luke Evans nail it as Dracula? Tell us what you think below, and if not, who could do it better? Sound off, and stay tuned my friends. I'm Erin Darling, you're watching Clevver Movies!
