Brad Pitt To Produce Dracula Movie 'Vlad'

Fresh on the heels of the hugely successful Twilight franchise, Summit Entertainment is working on a movie about the most famous vampire of all time, Dracula, aka Vlad the Impaler.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is called Vlad, written by 29-year-old British actor Charlie Hunnam (pictured).

Brad Pitt will produce alongside Dede Gardner via the duo’s Plan B Entertainment production company. Brad has a bit of experience with vampires himself, having starred in 1994′s Interview With the Vampire.

Set to direct the film is music video master Anthony Mandler, who has worked with Rihanna on a dozen of her videos including her latest “Russian Roulette.”

    Ooooh, Charlie is writing now. I hope he stars in it too.

  • LuckyL

    Finally, something GOOD with GOOD actors. This watered down vampire mess is such trash. Yes, bring it back to Dracula and Anne Rice.

  • hmmm

    @Sugarnspice: as long as he doesn’t star in it I’m sure it will be at least decent. Who is that Charlie guy? He’s like a much better looking version of Young Brad Pitt. Much better looking.

    RUH ROH, folks…it looks like Her Hairness’s world is about to get rocky…her PR ho, Stephen Huvane, has been forced out of his firm, PMK/HBH. Okay…Nikki Finke didn’t say he was being forced out, but that’s basically what it’s amounting to. Huvane’s gotten away with his pathological lying for years because he’s had the clout of one of the biggest PR agencies in the world backing him. Now that’s going to be gone. Let’s so how well he does at covering X’s ass without them…

    BREAKING NEWS!
    .
    SUNDAY 5:30 PM: PMK_LogoFor months now I’ve been receiving a lot of blind tips about big changes coming atop PMK/HBH, involving execs and mergers, all denied by the company. Well, this hasn’t been officially announced: Nate Schreiber, president of the high-profile flackery, left as of 5PM PT on Friday. He was upped a year ago January when Pat Kingsley stepped down from her CEO post to go it alone as a consultant, and Simon Halls and Cindi Berger were made co-CEOs. Sources insist there are more shoes to drop at PMK/HBH so beware if you stroll near the Blue Whale.
    .
    MONDAY 10:05 AM: Sources tell me that Robin Baum and Stephen Huvane are leaving PMK/HBH and partnering with Ina Treciokas, the former ID PR bigwig who left in 2008 to start her own agency. (ID’s Ina Treciokas Starts Own PR Agency.) I’m also being told there was another major announcement this AM at the Hollywood flackery. MORE
    .
    10:20 AM EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: Sources are also telling me that PMK/HBH announced at a staff meeting this morning that it will be merging with BNC on January 1st.

  • JP Fan

    Those dracula movies are a big hit . Not for me but my kids love them Good for Brad! He is one busy man. He doesn’t have time for gossip and neither does his gorgeous partner.
    They are RICH and their calandar is full. Lucky Jolie Pitts.

  • Brad Fan

    Another hit! Go Brad.

  • lol

    Maniston is going to host a holiday party at her Beverly hill home with Courteney Cox, Laura Dern, her yoga instructor and her acting coach. She really has no family. lol.

  • lol

    According to People.com, Maniston is going to host a holiday party at her Beverly hill home with Courteney Cox, Laura Dern, her yoga instructor and her acting coach. She really has no family. lol.

  • val

    val @ 12/07/2009 at 2:27 pm Appararently according to people, Maniston had a star studed party…. my question is…WHO WERE THE STARS????
    This is from people.com:
    The actress, 40, kicked off the festive season with a party for her close friends and employees at her Beverly Hills house on Sunday. Among the nearly 100 guests who attended the celebration were Courteney Cox, Laura Dern, yoga instructor Mandy Ingber, hairstylist Chris McMillan and Aniston’s acting coach Leigh Kilton Smith.

    This is great news! I hope Angie stars in it too!

    ===========================
    Hey people.com did not mention Norman…wonder what happened to him??? Think he finally broke free guys…LOL
    Hmmm…and no Brad…gash! What a shock! LOL

  • well

    @Stacey Marsbars:
    Neither Brad nor Angie will star in it. The studio hopes to make “a visually edgy and radical period movie” that, like “Twilight,” will help break the careers of new actors.

  • lol

    @val:
    Maniston is the only star. It is all about her, her,her.

  • um

    since when Man and her employee’s pary called star studed?lol

  • azya87

    can’t wait to watch it in cinema!

  • lovely

    It is gunna be awesome.

  • Dawn9476

    @lol:

    Says the person who is bringing her up in a post about Brad.

  • Dawn9476

    It will still most likely suck because Summit’s prints will be all over it. I can’t believe Brad is working with that awful company who produces crappy movies.

  • cee

    Dawn9476 you are so right!! I think X’s fans are more in love with Brad than they are JA. They seem to follow his every move and hate Angie so much it is scary.

  • Ms. Vlad

    Any parts for a skeletonized mother who wears black all the time, a vial of blood around her neck plays with knives….+and used to be a cutter?

  • Poor lonely Maniston

    Poor lonely Maniston @ 12/07/2009 at 2:51 pm Poor Jen, even Stephen Huvane her publicist has been pushed out of his own company that he founded. How the mighty have fallen. He is now going to partner with a less known entity while his former one becomes the largest and most powerful. Karma, baby!!!!!!!! No wonder her ” first look deal” bt her shiteous production co. ECHO n Universal has not yielded much for her. All her projects have stalled n will continue to stall esp now that Huvane is out of the big pond. Karma baby!

  • Satanic Pitt

    Vlad was more of a genocidal mass murderer than a vampire.

  • dead ringer

    Agie looks just Like Nosferatu.

  • Who cares???????

    @# 45 Dawn9476. It dosen’t matter crappy movies or not, Brad & Summit will be laughing all the way to the Bank, just like Summit is currently doing with Twilight. It’s the money that matters.
