Russell Crowe Up For Dracula Tale 'Harker'?
Russell Crowe: Gladiator. Mathematician. Dracula hunter?
According to Vulture, the Australian actor is currently in talks to join the upcoming vampire flick, "Harker." The film is a reimagining of Bram Stoker's "Dracula," which would have Crowe playing Jonathan Harker as a Scotland Yard detective instead of a lawyer, while he looks to solve a collection of murders in England. (Just think "American Gangster" set in 1800s England, with Denzel playing a vampire.)
Crowe is currently set to star in Tom Hooper's adaptation of "Les Miserables" (December 7) as well as Zach Snyder's Superman movie, "Man of Steel" (June 14, 2013). He is also seriously considering Darren Aronofsky's Noah's Ark feature.
Russell Crowe fans, are you not entertained? Because with this upcoming slate of films, you really should be.
