Don’t run away. We all know how atrocious Stephen Sommers’ 2004 take on Van Helsing was. Now get ready for something completely different.
Pajiba is reporting that Universal Pictures is developing a brand spanking new Van Helsing movie “based upon the same fictional vampire hunter character from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.”
After just stepping down from The Hobbit it is reported that Guillermo del Toro will be producing and writing the new treatment “described as an action horror story.”
This is just one of his many, many projects. He already tackled vampires with Blade II as well as his recent novel The Strain and wouldn’t mind seeing him do a new Van Helsing film. I’d doubt he would direct it, but at least we would have a strong script.
Do you want to see a new Van Helsing film, del Toro-style?
