Dominic Cooper Eyes Dracula Role

Source: ComingSoon

May 8, 2013

Dominic Cooper is eyeing a role in Gary Shore's Dracula, Variety reports. The Captain America: The First Avenger star would join Luke Evans in the title role and Sarah Gadon as the female lead.

UPDATE: Cooper is probably up for the role of "Mehmed," the main supporting role to Vlad the Impaler, a Turkish Sultan who takes Vlad under his wing and ultimately comes into conflict with him. Gadon would be playing "Mirena," an exotic and beautiful Transylvania woman who has a loving and caring relationship with Vlad. (These names may have changed since the earlier scripts.)

Said to explore the origin of the character, Dracula weaves vampire mythology with the true history of Prince Vlad the Impaler. It seeks to depict Dracula as a flawed hero in a tragic love story set in a dark age of magic and war.

"[Don't think] of the Dracula that Bram Stoker created," Evans told ComingSoon.net earlier this week. "The Dracula that I'm going to be portraying is the origin of Dracula. It's about the man that became Dracula. Don't be too quick to think he's a bad guy. I'm just going to say that."

Cooper, who recently starred in Niels Arden Oplev's Dead Man Down, can soon be seen in Scott Waugh's Need for Speed, hitting theaters March 14, 2014.

Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless scripted the most recent draft of the screenplay and Michael De Luca will serve as producer.

Dracula is scheduled for release August 8, 2014.

Yes, Vlad the Impaler was merely "misunderstood". Do the producers realize how assinine they sound?
