‘Blacula: The Black Vampire’ to be rebooted by MGM

According to Variety, MGM, in partnership with Hidden Empire Film, is developing a reboot of the classic “Blacula: The Black Vampire”.

Deon Taylor (‘Unwanted Guest’) will be responsible for the production.

The new version will be a reimagining of the 1972 classic. The reboot will pick up where the original franchise left off, following the sequel “The Screams of Blacula” (1973), and will take place in a metropolitan city after the coronavirus.

“Blacula is a former African prince who is cursed by Dracula after he refuses to end the slave trade. Blacula is buried and awakens 200 years later, ready to avenge the deaths of his ancestors and those who stole their work, culture and heritage from their people as they appropriated it for profit.

In addition to directing, Taylor will also write the screenplay alongside Micah Ranum.

In a statement, Taylor said, “Blacula is one of the most iconic franchises in black culture and it helped change the way we were seen on the big screen.”

New information should be published soon.
