Brad Pitt

Summit Entertainment wants even more vampire movies. The studio is developing a new “action-oriented” take on Dracula, currently in the form of a script written by actor Charlie Hunnam called Vlad. Brad Pitt is also producing the project with Dede Gardner through his Plan B Entertainment. They’ve also hired music video director and photographer Anthony Mandler to helm Vlad; this will be his feature directing debut. The story centers on Dracula as a young prince, when he was better known as Vlad the Impaler, the man behind the Dracula myth. Summit acquired this a while ago, but was developing it quietly until they found Mandler.

THR says that Mandler’s directing reel drew comparisons to Zack Snyder and his style on 300. He directed 10 of Rhianna’s videos as well as other videos for the Killers and Eminem. Warner Brothers had their eye on this project but Summit kept their hands on it. Here’s the best part: “Summit hopes to make a visually edgy and radical period movie that also will break a new talent.”
