After the success of Invisible Man, a reimagining of the classic movie monster, Universal is once again expanding its horror reboots with Dracula. The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reported that the new film will be directed by Karyn Kusama and produced by Blumhouse Productions, the production team behind Invisible Man. Kusama is best known for her work directing Jennifer’s Body, Girlfight, and The Invitation among other projects.
Universal has recently been turning to its classic horror characters like The Mummy and The Invisible Man to jump start its so-called “Monsterverse”. While Dracula has not officially been picked up for distribution by Universal, Blumhouse has a first look deal with the studio and Dracula is a classic Universal monster. Universal is also developing a new original monster movie from James Wan and Robbie Thompson (a writer and executive producer on Supernatural.)
