Opening this weekend is Dracula Untold. Directed by Gary Shore, the film stars Luke Evans as Vlad, a character based on Vlad the Impaler. When the Turkish ruler Mehmet (Dominic Cooper) threatens to take 1,000 boys from Transylvania including Vlad’s son, Vlad makes a desperate play to save them by becoming a vampire. The film also stars Sarah Gadon, Charles Dance, Art Parkinson, and Noah Huntley. For more on the film, watch a clip or read 50 things to know about Dracula Untold from our set visit.
The other day in New York City I spoke with Sarah Gadon about the film. She talked about why Dracula has remained popular for generations, how the film’s focus on Dracula’s family drew her to the project, her relationship with David Cronenberg, directing an episode of Reelside about Caitlin Cronenberg, and more. Hit the jump to watch.
