Ernest Dickerson (“Bones”) will direct “The Un-Dead,” the officially sanctioned sequel to Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” reports Variety.
Based on a novel written by Stoker’s great grand-nephew Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt, the story picks up twenty-five years after the original book.
Plans are afoot to re-publish the original Stoker work in its original form. Some of the excised plot was incorporated into the sequel book and will be used as plot in the new film.
Jack the Ripper and the infamous Madame Bathory make an appearance in “Un-dead”. Holt wrote the script and production will begin in Eastern Europe late in the year.
