Sam Worthington in Talks to Play Dracula in Dracula Year Zero

Sam Worthington Wants to Suck Your Blood

What if the two biggest movie trends of the last year — vampires and Avatar — were combined? We're going to find out, since Jake Sully himself, Sam Worthington, is in talks to play Dracula in Dracula Year Zero, an origin story of the iconic character.

Alex Proyas, known for The Crow, Dark City, and Knowing, is directing the film, which will examine vampire mythology and Prince Vlad the Impaler (not to be confused with Vlad, the other Dracula origin story, being produced by Brad Pitt).

I'm curious about Worthington in a non-action role after seeing him in two big blockbusters last year, and I'm wondering how he'll fare — the Dracula of Dracula Year Zero is described as "a flawed hero in a tragic love story." Flawed hero? Tragic love story? Sounds awfully familiar.

I cannot see him as Dracula. Dracula is suppose to be elegant and mysterious, dont think he is the right choice.

verily; right? in both Terminator and Avatar; I swear he had like six different accents - apparently he was born in England but raised in Austalia so maybe that has something to do with it. he's cute and not a bad actor; but he and his writers need to seriously decide what accent he's supposed to have in each role. as for this movie; can they just let it rest already??!! dracula is one of my favorite books; and it has been mercilessly mistreated by Hollywood. enough with recyling old successes; come up with something new...

I hope they get a good voice coach for him. He has an absolutely terrible faux American accent.
