Well, It looks like we are going to see Mr. Jonathan Rhys Meyers as DRACULA right after the world sees him as Valentine Morgenstern in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The new NBC TV drama is set to hit the small screen this fall. Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker.
Here’s a few pictures of DRACULA:
Here’s the official trailer for NBC’s DRACULA:
Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) stars in this provocative new drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters. It’s the late 19th century and the mysterious Dracula (Rhys Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night — useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: He hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. Victoria Smurfit (“About a Boy”), Thomas Kretschmann (“King Kong”), Jessica De Gouw (“Arrow”), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Mr. Selfridge”), Nonso Anozie (“Game of Thrones”) and Katie McGrath (“Merlin”) also star.
Writer Daniel Knauf (“Carnival”), Tony Krantz, (“24,” “Sports Night”), Colin Callender and Gareth Neame (“Downton Abbey”) serve as executive producers. “Dracula” is a production of Flame Ventures, Sky Living, Playground Entertainment, Universal Television, NBCUniversal International Television Production and Carnival Film & Television.
Just a quick reminder that Dracula is a limited series, which possibly means one season’s worth of episodes (10-episodes) and there are possibly no plans to go any further with it.
As well, NBC is known to present a lot of their upcoming TV series in SD Comic Con, as part of their promotional campaing. The most likely thing is that Dracula won’t be the exception. If there’s a panel for NBC’s Dracula, The Mortal Minute will be covering that one too. So we will keep our eyes open for any furder information!
