Warner Bros. Plans Harker

Source: ComingSoon

February 7, 2011

Warner Bros. appears set to develop Harker, a new take on Bram Stoker's "Dracula", to be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan). The news first broke at Badass Digest and now has a few additional details courtesy of Deadline.

The script, a spec from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (currently working on Pendragon), is said to relocate Stoker's tale to England where Jonathan Harker is tracking the monster on behalf of Scotland Yard.

Though Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the producers, he is not said to be involved in an acting capacity.

Collet-Serra to Make Dracula Scary Again in Harker

Source: ShockTillYouDrop

May 13, 2011

Jaume Collet-Serra has a lot on his plate. He launched a new company to shepherd fledgling talent and he's got a number of projects on the slab, including Harker.

The director of House of Wax, Orphan and Unknown will direct the film for Leonard DiCaprio's Appian Way. Scripted by Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, the story finds a young Jonathan Harker working for Scotland Yard who is tracking Dracula.

Collet-Serra spoke to Aullidos about project and said, "Basically, we intend to make a film based on [Bram] Stoker's Dracula, but I respect the book. [Today is all about] vampires and very romance for girls thirteen years. But we want to bring back Dracula and demonstrate who is boss."

Essentially, make him a bad-ass again.

The director is presently in post-production on The River, the pilot episode of a new television series created by Oren Peli.

Russell Crowe Eyes Dracula Tale Harker

Source: ComingSoon

February 10, 2012

First announced for development at Warner Bros. just over a year ago, Harker is planned to offer a new take on the "Dracula" mythos. Today, Vulture reports that the project may have found its titular lead in Russell Crowe.

To be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan), the script arrives as a spec from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy (also attached to Pendragon), and is said to relocate Stoker's tale to England where Jonathan Harker is tracking the monster on behalf of Scotland Yard.

Still far from signed, Crowe would fit in the project after a number of diverse upcoming roles. The actor will soon appear in RZA's directing debut The Man with the Iron Fists, Allen Hughes' Broken City, Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man of Steel and the big-screen version of the hit Broadway musical, Les Misérables. He's also been named as a likely candidate for a leading role in Darren Aronofsky's Noah.

Eli Roth May Sire Dracula Tale Harker

Source: ComingSoon, Deadline

July 10, 2012

Things have been relatively quiet for Eli Roth on the feature film directing front, last having helmed 2007's Hostel: Part II. That looks set to change in the near future, however, as (in addition to his upcoming The Green Inferno), Roth is in talks to direct the "Dracula" tale Harker.

The script arrives as a spec from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy and is said to relocate Stoker's tale to England where Jonathan Harker is tracking the monster on behalf of Scotland Yard.

Russell Crowe is attached to headline the project and, while he was originally thought to be playing the Harker role, the site reveals that the actor is actually attached to play Dracula himself.

Production on Harker would likely take place next year with The Green Inferno shooting later this fall.
