Dracula Reimagined With “Harker”

Warner Bros. Pictures, Appian Way and Mad Hatter Entertainment are developing “Harker”, what’s described as a re-imagining of Bram Stoker’s classic novel “Dracula” reports Variety.

In Stoker’s original novel, Harker is an estate agent dispatched to meet with Count Dracula in Transylvania, only to discover that he’s been made a prisoner by his vampiric host.

In this version, Harker is a Scotland Yard detective on the trail of Dracula.

Jaume Collet-Serra (“House of Wax,” “Unknown”) is set to direct from a script by Lee Shipman & Brian McGreevy. Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran will produce.
