Proyas to direct Universal’s ‘Dracula’

Alex Proyas will direct “Dracula Year Zero,” Universal’s origins tale about Vlad the Impaler. Project, being produced by Michael De Luca, is one of several in the works about the Romanian royal who inspired Bram Stoker’s vampire tale. Proyas (“I, Robot”) was attracted to the script by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, enthusing over their “fresh take on the legend.” The writers, who set up the project a year ago, said the goal was to show Vlad when he was still vital and to explore the fact that he’s considered a hero in Romania for fending off the Turks.
