A surfeit of Harkers

Posted by Glennis Byron on February 08, 2011 in News tagged with , ,

Deadline reports that Warner brothers, who already have the Johnny Depp/Tim Burton Dark Shadows in progress, are now closing a deal to acquire ‘Harker’, a reinvention of Stoker’s story that has Jonathan Harker as a Scotland Yard detective on the hunt for the vampire. Harker will be produced by Appian Way (Leonardo DiCaprio) The writers are Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy  and the film will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan).

I wonder what has happened then to plans to film the Markosia-published graphic novel sequel to Stoker’s Dracula,  optioned by Hollywood last summer. This Harker is written by Tony Lee and drawn by Neil Van Antwerpen and Peter-David Douglas, and has an introduction by Dacre Stoker.
