It looks as if NBC is putting a new spin on a classic story of love, loss, and horror.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who is best known for his role as King Henry VIII in The Tudors, will be taking up the role of Dracula.
In this incantation of the classic tale, Jonathan Rhys Meyers will essentially be playing three roles. he will be portraying Vlad Tepes, the man who violently lost the love of his life many years ago, Dracula, the monster who is out for blood soaked revenge, and Alexander Grayson, the façade that Dracula puts on for the world as he attempts to gain footing in the world of commerce.
The series will catch up with Dracula as he arrives in London posing as American Entrepreneur Alexander Grayson, a man who wants to bring modern science to a Victorian Society; however, his real intentions are something much more sinister.
His true intention is to wreak havoc and blood soaked revenge on those who cursed him with his immortality and took away the thing he loved the most; his wife.
There is only one thing that can stand in the way of his goal. Dracula comes upon a woman who poses a striking resemblance to his since deceased wife, and falls hopelessly in love with her.
Thanks to ComingSoon.net, we have come across a featurette that shows the cast of the new NBC Series, and they give us a deeper look into the new world of Dracula.
Dracula will premiere on Friday, October 25th at 10:00 p.m. on NBC.
