Been waiting for NBC to start talking about DRACULA but man, this is a bit crazy. They let lose today with a whopping 50 new stills all heralding the premiere of their new series about the blood sucker.
The premiere episode titled THE BLOOD IS THE LIFE hits the airwaves on Oct. 25th
The series itself will tell the following tale:
Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) stars in this provocative new one-hour drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters. It’s the late 19th century, and the mysterious Dracula 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.
Along with Meyers as Dracula/Alexander Grayson/Vlad Tepes, the other cast members include Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Jonathan Harker, Jessica De Gouw as Mina Murray/Ilona, Thomas Kretschmann as Abraham Van Helsing, Katie McGrath as Lucy Westenra, Nonso Anozie as R.M. Renfield, Victoria Smurfit as Lady Jayne Wetherby, Ben Miles as Mr. Browning, and Robert Bathurst as Lord Thomas Davenport.
I’m just going to show you a couple of the stills here, if you want to see the rest you can CLICK HERE and head on over to Dread Central who have posted up a nifty little slideshow as they were the first ones to give us these new images.
Good stuff all the way around. Really looking forward to this one!
