Tom Cruise in for vampire business as a more realistic Van Helsing!
Tom Cruise is attached to star in this new take on the famous vampire hunter. The film is said to present a different sort of Van Helsing than the traditional one seen from Anthony Hopkins in or the revamped fantasy version Hugh Jackman portrayed in 2004's Van Helsing. The reboot will present a more grounded and recognizable reality, in the same vein as Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight series.
This is the second time Cruise is starring in a project involving vampires. The first, of course, being Neil Jordan’s Gothic classic Interview with a Vampire, where he was on the other side of the teeth, so to speak, playing the vampire Lestat.
