Have you heard of the upcoming movie THE UN-DEAD? Yeah, me neither, until today. Its a "sequel" of sorts to Bram Stoker's DRACULA, set 25 years after, starring the surviving characters. "The Stoker family has officially recognized Holt’s screenplay, the first adaptation to receive such approval since the original 1931 Bela Lugosi-starring film." Hmmm. So far the cast includes Javier Bardem (Dracula), Monica Bellucci (Lucy, prrr) and John Hurt (Prof Van Helsing, cool). There's also supposed to be a "new" character, Inspector Cotford, who was originally in Stoker's manuscript but was removed just before publication. As with any vampire/Dracula movie, this could go either way.... history tells us it'll be shit, but I like to keep hope alive, despite what you read here on JimSmash.
