Luke Evans Would Like to Reprise Role of Dracula for Universal’s Dark Universe

Back in 2014, we got an origin story about the world’s most famous vampire. When Dracula: Untold hit theaters, its purpose was to give some background to Vlad and how he came to be known as Dracula.

Luke Evans starred in the titular role and has expressed interest in reprising the character for Universal’s Dark Universe.

In a recent interview with Screen Rant during the press tour for his latest film, Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, Evans said:

“I think it was a really enjoyable process for me. I think it definitely had a few flaws in it but I’ve had a lot of good feedback from and I get people me asking me will there we sequel. We left it very wide open, you know, this is a character who could transcend many different times and different periods of history. Who knows. I’d love to bring him back in some concept or context, but honestly, you know as little as I do when it comes with what is going in on the dream rooms of Universal Studios. I really don’t know.”

Currently, Universal’s Dark Universe is on hold. The first film, The Mummy was a critical and box office disappointment, and their Bride of Frankenstein film has also been put on the back burner. So, it will be interesting to see what is next, if anything, for the Dark Universe.
