Crystal Sky, the production company whose names sounds more like a diet soft drink, has just announced plans for a Dracula film whose name sounds more like a Left Behind novel: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse. More after the jump.
The last big-budget blockbuster Dracula film was Francis Ford Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula (pictured above). Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "Crystal Sky will go into production this summer on Dracula: The 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse, to be shot on location in Romania. Pearry Reginald Teo (Necromentia) is directing. [CEO Steven] Paul is looking to cast a star in the lead."
"'It's the first installment in a franchise about a young, romantic Prince of Darkness, his Army of the Undead and a series of events that shake Transylvania to its core,' said Paul, who calls the vampires 'the bad boys' of their time. He said the intent is to create a Twilight-typefranchise, which will spin off movie after movie in years to come."
