The Team Behind SHERLOCK Will Take On DRACULA Next
According to an exclusive just published by Variety, Sherlock's Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are bringing another famous literary character to the small screen. Here's the news:
“Dracula is getting the Sherlock treatment, with the writers and producers of the hit BBC detective series reuniting for a new take on the Bram Stoker vampire classic. Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffatwill write the series, and Sue Vertue’s Hartswood Films will produce."
Yes, we're getting another Dracula adaptation. That's either good news or bad news, depending on your interest in Dracula adaptations (personal note: I think there should be a moratorium on Dracula adaptations and/or vampire movies for the next two decades, full stop), but it's inarguably good news that Moffat and Gatiss will be writing the show. If someone's gonna do it, we're glad it's gonna be these guys.
Variety goes on to say that no real work has yet been completed on the project - we don't even know if this new Dracula will be set in the modern day - but talks are underway with the BBC as we speak, and we'll probably hear something sooner rather than later.
You guys into it? Not so much? Have you stuck with Sherlock all this time? Let's hear what you have to say in the comments below.
