Dominic Cooper

After helping Abraham Lincoln become a vampire hunter in the aptly titled Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, supporting actor Dominic Cooper is getting back in the bloodsucking genre with Universal's Dracula, formerly known as Dracula Year Zero. Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6) was just recently brought on to lead the story that follows real-life historical figure Prince Vlad of Transylvania, known as the inspiration for Dracula, as his wife and child find themselves in danger from a despicable sultan. He risks his very soul to save them, and that's the origin story of the first vampire that we know as Dracula. Read on!

However, Variety does not specify what role Cooper is playing. Evans is supposed to be leading the film, so we're assuming that he's playing Vlad, but since we're not sure who any of the other characters are, Cooper's casting doesn't really tell us much right now. Sarah Gadon (Cosmopolis) also has a role in the film as well, but again, her character has not been revealed. Michael De Luca (Moneyball) is still on board as producer with the most recent script coming from Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless writing a new draft of the script. Commercials director Gary Cooper is directing, so hopefully this turns out all right for Universal.
