Despite the fact that Count Dracula has visited large and small screens many times, the interest of film producers to the fierce bloodsucker does not subside. Another intriguing project promises to be a new film by Blumhouse, which will be directed by Karin Kusama, director of The Invitation and Time of Retribution. According to her, the upcoming adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel will be“pretty accurate”.|
“We have conceived a version close to the original, says Karin. -I think previous adaptations overlooked the novel's polyphony, but in fact this book is filled with different points of view. And to one of them, namely to the point of view of Dracula, we have no access, while more and more adaptations present this story through his eyes. Our version is called Dracula, but he may not be the romantic hero you've seen before. ”
Experts believe that we are waiting for a film in the spirit of the recent "Invisible Man" with Elisabeth Moss. He was quite different from his predecessors, but he was successful in all plans.
At the moment, the most famous screen version of Bram Stoker's novel is the 1992 film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, in which Gary Oldman played the role of the titular bloodsucker. Both in him and in the recently released mini-series with Claes Bang, the image of Count Dracula is rather romanticized, which Karin Kusama, apparently, intends to avoid. Among the director's works on TV are the series Billions and The Man in the High Castle.
