Eli Roth, the man behind the horror, “Hostel” could be set to direct “Harker”- a Warner Bros. update of the Dracula myth, that may feature Oscar-winning actor, Russell Crowe.
New York Magazine’s, The Vulture first reported Crowe’s involvement back in February. At the time it was not clear whether the “Gladiator” and “Beautiful Mind” star would play Draculas himself or the title vampire hunter.
The film will follow, Jonathan Harker, a Scotland Yard detective trying to track down Dracula.
Roth and Crowe are no strangers to each other as Crowe has played the villain before in Roth’s “Man With The Iron Fists.”
If Crowe is to fulfill the role of Dracula it will only add to his string major characters in his upcoming movies such as: Noah in Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah” (about Noah’s Ark) and Inspector Javert in December’s big screen adaptation of “Les Miserables.”
