Hilary Swank


Hilary Swank will play a New York-based TV journalist who travels to Romania to interview a notorious European arms dealer, who is a modern-day Dracula.

John Carpenter is bringing Dracula back from the dead - the famed horror moviemaker has signed up to direct Hilary Swank in a modern-day adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic vampire tale. The "Halloween" director has agreed to take charge of Fangland, which is based on the 2007 novel by John Marks.

The plot sees Stoker's story re-imagined in the tale of a female New York-based TV journalist who travels to Romania to interview a notorious European arms dealer, who is a modern-day Dracula, according to Variety.com. Swank is set to star as ill-fated reporter Evangeline Harker.

In addition to playing in the modern-day adaptation of Dracula movie, Hilary Swank is also set to star in "The Resident". She tackles the role of Dr. Juliet Dermer opposite Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christopher Lee among others.
