IT Director Andy Muschietti In Talks For Dracula Prequel Dracul”

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Paramount Pictures has acquired screen rights to Dracul, a spinoff prequel authorized by the estate of legendary author Bram Stoker.

Paramount Studios has launched development of "Dracula", a prequel to the classic Dracula story, and attached "It" director Andy Muschietti.

Producers are Roy Lee and Barbara Muschietti, who teamed on "It".

Per Deadline, Dracul is the first work to be officially recognized by the Bram Stoker estate. Taking place in 1868, a 21-year-old Stoker will reportedly experience a horrific encounter with what is referred to as "an ungodly evil" that becomes trapped in an ancient tower; events that presumably become the inspiration for his bellwether 1897 Dracula novel.

When you think of Count Dracula, one of the first things that comes to mind is blood-so it's only fitting that the latest Dracula movie is being written by a man who shares some with the character's creator. Britain's Hammer House would produce their own slate of Dracula films starring Christopher Lee throughout the '50s and '60s. In 1992, Bram Stoker's Dracula was released starring Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Keanu Reeves, and Anthony Hopkins.

Of course, we recently got a "Dracula Prequel" with Universal's 2014 box office dud Dracula Untold, in which Luke Evans played would-be vampire Vlad Tepes, whose Faustian bargain turned an earnest leader into the evil Prince of Darkness.

Dracul, on the other hand, is without a release window at this early stage in the game, but we'll be keeping you posted as more information begins to creep out of the shadows. Budding horror maven Muschietti is already committed to directing an IT sequel that will revisit the first film's adolescent Loser's Club as adults, while also exploring the story's cosmic dimension "The Deadlights".
