We’ve been reporting that Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) had been cast as the lead in Universal’s Dracula Year Zero, and while the film still maintains the plot of following Prince Vlad (Evans) through his descent the film has dropped the Year Zero to be just Dracula. It has also added a co-star.
Dominic Cooper of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is in final talks to co-star in Dracula according to Variety. No word on what his role will be, but we’ll keep you posted.
Dracula starring Luke Evans and Dominic Cooper is slated to hit theaters August 8, 2014.
