Sarah Gadon knows a thing or two about freaky movies. A favorite of the Cronenberg brood -- she starred in David's "A Dangerous Method" and "Cosmopolis" and is slated to star in his next effort "Maps To The Stars" while she also featured in Brandon's "Antiviral" -- the actress is on her way up, and now has a franchise movie to call her own.

Sarah Gadon knows a thing or two about freaky movies. A favorite of the Cronenberg brood -- she starred in David's "A Dangerous Method" and "Cosmopolis" and is slated to star in his next effort "Maps To The Stars" while she also featured in Brandon's "Antiviral" -- the actress is on her way up, and now has a franchise movie to call her own.

Universal is now in talks with Gadon for the female lead in "Dracula" aka The Movie That Will Make Luke Evans Happen. Penned by "Flash Gordon" writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, this is an origin story thing, showing how young Prince Vlad sacrifices himself at the hands of a bloodthirsty sultan and becomes the first vampire. No word yet on what Gadon's role exactly is, but undoubtedly, she'll be under Vlad's gaze or spell or get bitten on whatever. Okay, so we're not excited for this movie, but we like Gadon, and that's a reason why we'll plunk ourselves down to watch it.

Commercials director Gary Shore will direct and production will begin this year, for an August 8, 2014 release. [Variety]
