Summit Entertainment to Develop a New Movie About Dracula Called Vlad

Summit Takes on a New Vampire Tale With Brad Pitt's Help

Move over, Edward Cullen; Summit is bringing back the original badass bloodsucker of the silver screen. The production company that put the Twilight Saga on the map is developing a new film called Vlad, chronicling the life of Dracula in his younger years as a prince.

Brad Pitt is already on board to produce via Plan B Entertainment and Anthony Mandler is in talks to direct. Mandler has directed music videos for the likes of Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, John Mayer and Jay-Z. Just don't expect to see another teen romance: the vision for this project is more "action-oriented" (which I can only assume means it'll be scarier).

I don't need to remind you all that vampires are so hot right now, but are you on board with a Dracula throwback or are you ready to move on to something new (like werewolves, perhaps?)
