Robert Pattinson In Talks To Star As Dracula In Chloé Zhao’s Sci-Fi Western
In 2021 it was announced that Chloé Zhao is set to write, direct, and produce an all-new sci-fi Western take on Dracula for Universal. Now it has been reported by Daniel Richtman that Robert Pattinson is in talks to star as the iconic character.
The film will reportedly follow Dracula after he awakens many years in the future. Themes of being on the fringes of society will be focused on in the feature.
Zhao is producing the project through her production company Highwayman. The filmmaker gained critical acclaim for Nomadland, for which she earned the Academy Award for Best Director to match the film’s Best Picture award. Most recently, she helmed Marvel Studios’ Eternals in 2021.
Pattinson dominated Hollywood last year with his debut as Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves The Batman. The star’s next upcoming projects include Adam McKay’s Average Height, Average Build and Bong Joon Ho’s Mickey 17.
