Argento's version of Dracula is said to feature elements from the Bram Stoker's novel, but it will not be a direct adaption. In addition to directing the film, Argento also penned the screenplay along with Enrique Cerezo, Stefano Piani, and Antonio Tentori.
In the film, "A young librarian, Jonathan Harker, is welcomed at Castle Dracula by the Count and a young woman named Tania, who seems intent on seducing Harker. The Count prevents Tania from biting the young man, but Dracula attacks Harker himself, leaving the him weak. Harker attempts to escape the castle, but is killed by a wolf. Harker's wife, Mina, arrives in the village and stays at the home of her friend, Lucy Kisslinger. Worried about her husband, she visits the castle, and falls under the spell of the Count. It transpires that Dracula has engineered their meeting, because Mina is the reincarnation of his long-lost love, Dolinger. Lucy also becomes undead before the mysterious happenings in the village attract the attention of vampire expert Van Helsing, who prepares for final combat with his deadliest foe."
Look for the lovely Asia Argento to star as Lucy, Thomas Kretschmann will take on the role of Dracula, Marta Gastini portrays Mina, and Rutger Hauer transforms into Van Helsing. Miguel Angel Silvestre and Miriam Giovanelli also star in the 3D extravaganza.
