Rutger Hauer Is Van Helsing in Dario Argento’s DRACULA 3D

Rutger Hauer has reportedly been cast as Van Helsing in Italian horror icon Dario Argento’s upcoming Dracula 3D. Per Twitch, Hauer is the only thesp currently attached to Argento’s project which is scheduled to begin production in May of this year. Although the quality of Argento’s output has, in my opinion, noticeably declined of late, the undeniable influence of previous works such as Deep Red and Suspiria means that I will most likely be giving his Dracula 3D a fighting chance.

As for Hauer, the 67 year-old’s career has recently received a boost due to roles in films such as The Rite and the ultra-violent throwback flick Hobo with a Shotgun [check out Matt’s resoundingly positive review from Sundance 2011 here]. In spite of my reserved feelings about Dracula 3D, matching Hauer’s ever-reliable on-screen presence with Argento’s taste for experimentation could result in a worthy entry into the trials and tribulations of Count Dracula.
