Dracula rises in sequel
From Time Out London:
Dracula is all set to return from the grave, with director Jan De Bont resurrecting the long-fanged anti-hero. Bram Stoker's estate has authorized a sequel to the author's classic gothic novel, and writer Ian Holt has put together a screenplay entitled 'The Un-Dead' (the subtitle of Stoker's original). Holt's script will take place 25 years after the original, and includes characters like Mina Harker and Van Helsing as well as Inspector Cotford, a police officer who was edited from Stoker's original manuscript.More here and here.
