Tabloids claim Tarantino plans Dracula movie

This came out of nowhere. Apparently Quentin Tarantino plans a short stay in Vienna, Austria and has planned trips to several castles in the surrounding area (source / source), supposedly location scouting for a Dracula movie. Now we’re not very sure what to make of this. For one, visiting castles is a very normal thing to do when you’re in Austria (or for that matter, anywhere else in Europe). Secondly, who says that is for a Dracula movie? It could really be for anything, from Inglourious Basterds 2 to Cinderella – or simply tourism. We’ll try to keep you posted on this :) And watch out at night, keep a cross, garlic juice and a dagger handy….

    You are so right about this one. Although it's a cool idea, I'd love to see QT doing more horror. He may simply be playing tourist.

    Yeah, there's no way he's doing a vampire movie. However, on the Pulp Fiction dvd there is an interview where Roger Avary says he's written a vampire movie. Sadly, he never made it. He described it as being to vampire films what Killing Zoe was to heist films. Sounded cool.

    I reckon it could be obscure house hunting, or for a new film with Lady Gaga as the assassin as previously mentioned.

    Didn't he write From Dusk Till Dawn? That's a vampire film, i'm pretty sure its not a dracula movie. I would love to see QT do a science fiction, that would be something else

  5. Hjdbing says:

    are you sure he wasn't talking about From Dusk Til Dawn?

  6. Daniel5383 says:

    maybe with all the new popularity towards vampire shit (via Twilight, True Blood, etc…) he was pushed to make his vampire movie he wrote a long time ago into a reality…Time will tell

    A really good Dracula movie would be awesome esspecialy after all this twilight BS.

    I hope he’s looking for his “Schloß Adler” for IB2… (and believe me, it’s well-named, because only an eagle can get to it.)

    Tarantino basically remaking “Where Eagles Dare” would be my dream movie. Or maybe a remake of “Where Eagles Dare” crossed with “The Thing” – guys on a mission stumble across a Nazi-bred mutating monster in an Austrian castle… now THAT’S my dream movie!

  14. There’s no way he’s doing a vampire movie.

  15. Dusk Till Dawn, the 1st one…one of my all time favorite vampire movies. But rumors are just that until I see the actual real deal. Dracula would be a hell of a feat.
