Brad Pitt Has Returned to the Vampire World
So good news vampire fans, it looks like Brad Pitt and the makers of the Twilight movies, Summit Entertainment, are in the process of making another vampire flick for us to sink our hungry fangs into.
The incredible Brad Pitt is set to produce a new film called Vlad, which tells the story of the young Count Dracula. The movie will reportedly focus on Dracula as a young prince and will also incorporate the true tale of Vlad the Impaler, the Romanian ruler said to have inspired Bram Stoker’s legendary vampire Dracula.
Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company has teamed up with Summit Entertainment, the studio behind the insanely popular Twilight franchise, for the venture. And not only that but rumors are that the famed music video director Anthony Mandler, who has done multiple videos for Rihanna, OneRepublic, Nelly Furtado, Maroon 5, The Killers and even Eminem, is said to be in negotiations to direct the picture. Considering how amazing his music videos are, thereâs no doubt a full out movie directed by him wonât be just as incredible (check out Rihannaâs Disturbia video or The Killersâ Tranquilize).
Unfortunately, we donât know yet if the gorgeous Brad Pitt will have a starring role in the movie, but if he did he would no doubt be beyond drool-worthy.
And for those youngins that donât know, this isnât the famous actorâs first trip into vampire-ville. Brad Pitt was one of the stars of the 1994 movie adaptation of Anne Riceâs Interview with the Vampire, playing the dark and tortured vampire Louis, along side Tom Cruiseâs wicked Lestat. If you havenât already, watch the movie. Yea yea, thereâs no tween love story but there is an excellent story, horror and the very sexy Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Antonio Banderas and even the flawless Thandie Newton (before she was famous).
Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).
