Sarah Gadon has been cast in the forthcoming Universal project Dracula. According to Variety, she is circling the female lead, which I believe from reading the script years ago, is Dracula’s main squeeze.
Gary Shore is directing the film which is slated to open August 8, 2014 with Luke Evans attached to star as the eponymous bloodsucker.
Gadon recently starred in Brandon Cronenberg’s Antiviral (pictured) and David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis. She’s also starring in the latter’s new project, too.
Dracula delves into the origins of the man as he makes a dark pact to save his wife and child. He becomes a vampire and ultimately uses his powers of darkness to fight his enemies.
