A new untitled Dracula movie is reportedly under development by Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions who were behind the critically acclaimed hit 'The Invisible Man'.

Karyn Kusama is reportedly directing the project. She was behind the genius that was the 'Destroyer,' 'The Invitation', and 'Jennifer’s Body'. Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay will write the script. The duo teamed up with Kusama on 'Destroyer' and 'The Invitation', Variety reported.

The character of Count Dracula was first conjured up in the 1897 novel 'Dracula' by author Bram Stoker. Here, the Vampire came to England from Transylvania and battled with Professor Abraham Van Helsing.

In 1931, Bela Lugosi played the role of the vampire in Universal's 'Dracula' while Luke Evans played the vampire in the 2014 film 'Dracula Untold.' With this new movie on the horizon, excited fans have responded with their suggestions about who they want to see play the role of the favorite blood-sucking character on the big screen. And the consensus is Adam Driver.

In response to Variety's tweet about the new movie, a fan replied, "Who wants to start the 'Adam Driver as Dracula' prayer circle." Hopefully, Kusama is all ears, as another fan tweeted with all the enthusiasm they could muster, "WE SAID ADAM DRIVER AS DRACULA KARYN PLEASE."

The tweets kept pleading with Kasuma to cast Driver. "Yes!! Jennifer's Body fans unite!! #KarynKusama is a perfect choice. Also #AdamDriver better be Dracula," tweeted another fan.

Some even reminisced how Driver could bring back the magic while taking up the role of Dracula. One fan tweeted, "For some reason, Adam Driver immediately came to mind, perhaps because he kind of reminds of the kind of Dracula Frank Langella played back in 1979."

Will Karyn Kusama give the fans what they want? We are waiting on Hollywood's decision.
