Brad Pitt to Produce 'Dracula' Remake

It looks like vampire fever is here to stay! Rob Pattinson may be everyone’s favorite vampire now, but Brad Pitt knows a thing or two about sexy vampires.

The former Interview With the Vampire star may have retired his movie fangs, but he's ready to sink his teeth into a new vampire project.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Brad is set to produce a remake of Dracula for Summit Entertainment, the group behind the Twilight franchise.

The movie Vlad, written by 29-year-old British actor Charlie Hunnam, centers on Dracula as a young prince; he is known to history as Vlad the Impaler, the man behind the Dracula myth.

"With "Vlad," Summit hopes to make a visually edgy and radical period movie that also will break a new talent," reports THR.

No word yet on who will play the young Dracula, but with the vampire craze we've been having, he's sure to be the next big thing.
