Latino Review first reported and Entertainment Weekly confirmed it; Sam Worthington is negogiating with Universal Pictures to star in the planned-2011 tent poll movie, "Dracula: Year Zero." Directed by Alex Proyas (Dark City; I, Robot), the film traces Dracula's roots.
I love me some Sam Worthington, who got really hot this past year because of Terminator: Salvation and (of course) Avatar. But my initial reaction is that this Dracula movie is a joke. I have a feeling that this will be in the vein of Van Helsing, which was a loud, obnoxious, mediocre movie.
