Sherlock Creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat Developing Dracula TV Series

Sherlock Creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat Developing Dracula TV Series”

Variety reports that Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat will re-team to develop and write the series, which will be produced by Sue Vertue's Hartswood Films.

The writers and producers of the hit BBC series Sherlock, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, will be reuniting to sink their teeth into a classic, Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Commentary: As a huge fan of Moffat and Gatiss's SHERLOCK, this is awesome news. Gatiss - who plays Sherlock's brother Mycroft on that series - has spoken before about his love of classic horror films, especially the 1958 version of Dracula. The duo are reportedly in negotiations with BBC to produce and broadcast the series within the United Kingdom. The series will follow Sherlock's pattern of a collection of feature-length episodes making up a larger miniseries run. Other than "Sherlock", Moffat and Gatiss have also worked together on another British institution, "Doctor Who", for which Moffat has been the showrunner for the last six seasons. Sherlock propelled star Benedict Cumberbatch to global fame and he's since begun appearing regularly in movies including Star Trek Into Darkness, The Imitation Game, and Marvel's Doctor Strange. He seems to have a knack for bringing old characters into a modern setting, so I'd put some decent money on Dracula taking place in 2018 (or whatever year it happens to be released).

According to United Kingdom website the Radio Times, the series is likely to air in 2019.

The source told the RadioTimes.com: "Casting is a long way off but the feeling is he probably won't - but you never know".

The legendary blood-sucker has been portrayed on film for years, including recently by Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the short-lived NBC series in 2013.
