J. Michael Straczynski — whose credits include Thor, Underworld: Awakening, and The Changeling — is teaming with Roy Lee (The Ring) and Rob Tapert (Xena: Warrior Princess, The Evil Dead) in developing Vlad Dracula. Starz says the project is a “unique spin of the classic tale, blending the historical facts of the 15th century Prince of Wallachia, with the fictional Dracula whose story is known around the world and continues to fascinate audiences.  Vlad Dracula traces his evolution from a revered ruler to the world’s most feared vampire, and his slow downfall as he struggles desperately to hang on to his humanity, his wife and his kingdom.”
