De Bont and Atchity are seeking a director for the project, the first sequel authorized by the descendants of “Dracula” author Bram Stoker since the 1931 original, starring Bela Lugosi.

“The Un-Dead,” penned by Ian Holt, is set 25 years after the events of Stoker’s novel, with the surviving characters resurfacing. Holt’s also added an Inspector Cotford character, which was edited from Stoker’s manuscript prior to publication.

Holt scouted locations in Whitby, England, and Transylvania, Romania, including a visit to the ruins of Dracula’s castle. His credits include horror project “Dr. Chopper.”

De Bont’s attached to direct and produce New Line’s “Meg” with Atchity and “Stopping Power” for QED, Intermedia and Action Concept.
