Argento begins casting Dracula 3-D

Hey everyone...Italian horror maestro Dario Argento has began casting for his version of the fanged one...Dracula and in 3D no less.

Argento's first cast member is the awesomely under-used Rutger Hauer. Hauer who is having a career revival lately has been cast to play the vampire hunter Van Helsing. He can be see in Hobo with a Shotgun.

Hmmmm...Argento....Hauer....Vampires....AWESOME....let's hope the 3D doesn't blow.


  1. I agree. He is definitely under appreciated. Split Second is one of my FAVORITE movies :)

    Looking forward to seeing this!


  2. This is shaping up to be a fantastic picture! The fact that Argento is going back to the Stoker novel is extremely positive, and I think Mr. Hauer will make an INCREDIBLE Van Helsing! I'm certainly more interested in seeing this than the other Dracula flick in pre-production ("Harker", which is another lame "re-imagining" of the story with Harker as a Scotland Yard detective. *yawn*)
