“Nomadland” director Chloé Zhao is tackling the classic Universal monster Dracula, as the writer, producer, and director of a new take on the character in the vein of a sci-fi Western.
“I’ve always been fascinated by vampires and the concept of the Other they embody,” Zhao said in a release. “I’m very excited to work with Donna, Peter and the team at Universal to reimagine such a beloved character.”
“Chloé’s singular lens shines a light on stories of the overlooked and misunderstood,” said Peter Cramer, Universal Pictures president. “We are thrilled to be working with her as she reimagines one of the most iconic outsider characters ever created.”
More to come.
