'Nomadland' Chloe Zhao Attached to Direct New 'Dracula' Adaptation

A new Dracula movie is in the works!

Variety has announced that Nomadland director Chloe Zhao is set to direct an adaptation of Bram Stoker‘s classic horror novel.

While details of the movie have yet to be released, the project is said to be a re-interpretation of the book that incorporates science fiction and western elements.

Chloe said in a statement, ““I’ve always been fascinated by vampires and the concept of the Other they embody. I’m very excited to work with Donna [Langley], Peter [Cramer] and the team at Universal to reimagine such a beloved character.”

The novel has been adapted a few times, with Bela Lugosi taking on the iconic role in 1931, Gary Oldman starring in Francis Ford Coppola‘s adaptation in 1992 and most recently in the 2014 Luke Evans reboot Dracula Untold.

Chloe‘s most recent movie Nomadland, which stars Frances McDormand, has been getting lots of Oscar buzz. Click here to see the trailer and find out the release date!
