BCC and Netflix will be partnering for a new Dracula TV project. The mini-series is said to be a reimagining of the classic Victorian London horror novel by Bram Stoker. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss will be overseeing it.
Count Dracula, a 15th-century prince, is condemned to live off the blood of the living for eternity. Young lawyer Jonathan Harker is sent to Dracula’s castle to finalise a land deal, but when the Count sees a photo of Harker’s fiancée, Mina, the spitting image of his dead wife, he imprisons him and sets off for London to track her down.
We have learned that production designer Arwel Jones has joined the horror mini-series. His credits include working on previous Moffat projects such as Sherlock and Doctor Who.
Dracula is said to be eyeing a production start this January in London, England.
Casting leading roles seems to be the next big step for the project, could we see Sherlock or Doctor Who actors join Dracula? That remains to be seen but there is a very good chance we might see some actors carry over.
The series will be airing on BBC in the United Kingdom and Netflix in other markets sometime next year.
