With studios dumping so many high-profile movie projects lately — this past week alone, Legendary Pictures pulled the plug on Paradise Lost and Columbia Pictures and Screen Gems dumped The Boys and The Mortal Instruments, respectively — it's kind of refreshing to hear that a once-dead movie project is getting new life. According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has revived Dracula Year Zero and is currently in negotiations with short film and commercial director Gary Shore to helm the movie, which focuses on Vlad "The Impaler" Tepes, the real-life Romanian Prince of Wallachia whose title "Dracula" ("Son of the Dragon") became synonymous with vampires following the publication of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel of the same name.
