Dracula pic park sees light of day

World Brief

Romania’s Dracula movie theme park is rising from the dead and will be developed near the capital of Bucharest, Romanian Tourist Minister Dan Matei Agathon announced Thursday.

Universal will earn millions in royalties as it owns the Dracula copyright and produced seven Dracula movies between 1930 and 1960.

U had threatened court action to get a piece of the action when Romania first proposed building a park in honor of its famous son — the vampire tale is based on the life of the 15th century Romanian Count Vlad Tepes.

In January, a spike was driven through the heart of the project after a feasibility study by PricewaterhouseCoopers nixed Sighisoara, the real Dracula’s birthplace and home, as a site because of poor infrastructure and accessibility.
