John Carpenter has signed on to direct “Fangland,” an updated version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula set up with DAS Films and Blumhouse Prods.

Sriram Das and Jason Blum are producing. Tracy Underwood is also involved in a producing capacity.

“Fangland” is based on the 2007 novel by former “60 Minutes” producer John Marks. It’s centered on a New York-based producer who travels to Romania for an interview with a notorious European arms dealer, who turns out to be a modern-day Dracula.

Mark Wheaton (“Friday the 13th”) penned the adaptation.

Carpenter is in post-production on ghost story “The Ward” for indie Echo Lake, with Amber Heard starring as a haunted woman in a mental institution. Danielle Panabaker, Mamie Gummer and Lyndsy Fonseca also star.

“The Ward” is Carpenter’s first directing gig since 2001’s “Ghosts of Mars.” Other credits include “Escape From New York,” “Escape from L.A.,” “Christine” and “Starman.”
