Italian Director Dario Argento Making Dracula in 3D Next Year

Dario Argento's Dracula

Legendary Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento will be trying his hand at Dracula next. Announced at Cannes today, as mentioned briefly in a Tweet (via Bloody-Disgusting), Argento will start filming Dracula in 3D in Italy in January. The film will have a period setting and apparently be quite realistic, as that poster above (with the very realistic-looking bat) is the actual early promo poster for this project as first shown on ShockTillYouDrop. They also mention the synopsis for this Dracula project says it's "a faithful translation of the Bram Stoker novel." However, we don't know too much else about Argento's Dracula just yet. Read on!

As far as I know, this will be Dario Argento's 20th film that he's directed since 1970. He has another movie called Giallo starring Adrien Brody and Elsa Pataky that is supposed to be out sometime soon, but we're not sure when. Argento also tackled another classic movie monster, the phantom, with Phantom of the Opera in 1998. It looks like Argento is really trying to make a comeback, at age 69, before he finishes up his career (if that'll even happen?), but this seems like it should be an interesting Dracula adaptation in his hands. We'll keep you updated on more details about this project as we hear them. Anyone excited about this at all?

3D is a lot of fun with CG animation; I am not so sure about horror genre

seriously, does the industry not look at the internet..how many times do people have to say "Fuck 3d" before they stop thinking it's a good idea. this is so ignorant. I mean who the fuck says "man, I wish I could see Dracula in 3d"

So that's going to be FIFTH Dracula film in development. I think so far we have already: The Last Voyage of Demeter (Phoenix Pictures), Dracula: Year Zero (Universal), Vlad (Summit Entertainment) and rumoured Dracula the Undead (based on novel by Dacre Stoker). A great article about it here: http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news/topnews.php?id=14438

Sounds interesting. Argento┬┤s POTO was many things, but colours, sets and costumes had gorgeous Gothic feel. Go Dracula!

I'm looking forward to it, and I hope it IS like the recent Wolf Man movie. Dark and serious with no little kids or goofy wise cracking side kicks.
