Well, no. You can rest assured that the zombie genre is alive and well, as my partner in crime, King Hazard, pointed out in his article about the Day of the Dead remake. However, the vampire genre, despite being relatively quiet in theaters, refuses to lie down.

The latest news in the vampire world is that Zach McGowan has joined director Gary Shore in his telling of Dracula (the project was formerly called Dracula: Year Zero). McGowan, who’s starred in Terminator Salvation, Shameless, and Black Sails, will play a gypsy chief named Shkelgim in the Dracula origin story.

McGowan joins Luke Evans (Immortals, The Raven, Clash of the Titans), who plays Prince Vlad, and Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

Michael De Luca and Alissa Phillips are producing this version of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (the book, not the film) written by Matt Sazama and Burt Sharpless.

Universal expects to hit the theaters with Dracula on August 8, 2014.
