Avengers: Endgame star Sebastian Stan expressed his interest in playing Dracula in Blumhouse’s remake of the film.
Last month, it was reported that Blumhouse Production is developing a Dracula reboot for Universal Pictures following the success of director Leigh Whannell’s The Invisible Man. The new take on the classic Bram Stoker novel will be helmed by Karyn Kusama, best known for directing Jennifer’s Body and Destroyer, the latter of which starred Nicole Kidman and Avengers: Endgame star Sebastian Stan.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Karyn Kusama’s work on Destroyer was brought up and the conversation then turned to Blumhouse’s Dracula reboot. In response, Sebastian Stan noted that he reached out to Kusama to remind her that he is from Romania, suggesting he’s interested in playing Dracula in the upcoming horror film:
“I already emailed her about that. I said, ‘You know I’m from Romania, right?’ and she goes, ‘Yes, yes, it’s very early — and there’s a pandemic. Hopefully, we’ll see you in four years.’ (Laughs.)
Bram Stoker’s original Dracula novels follow the titular vampire as he attempts to move from Transylvania to England in hopes of finding new blood and spreading the undead curse. However, full details on how Blumhouse plans to adapt the Dracula story are currently under wraps.
Here is the official synopsis for Sebastian Stan’s Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Josh Brolin.
