About DRACULA 2000:
In this loose reinvention of the classic Bram Stoker novel, the Count (Gerard Butler) is transplanted to the present day, after a brief prologue where Van Helsing (Christopher Plummer) captures and conceals the vampire in Carfax Abbey. In the future, Carfax Abbey is contained within an office building where Van Helsing’s been using Dracula’s blood to stay alive in order to guard the evil secret. After a band of thieves, led by the malevolent Marcus (Omar Epps), attempts to seize Dracula’s remains, the Count escapes to New Orleans, where Mary Van Helsing (Justine Waddell) currently resides. Mary is eventually persuaded to fight Dracula with the aid of a reluctant Simon (Jonny Lee Miller), one of Van Helsing’s employees, all while trying to escape the newly made vampires of Marcus’ gang and a zealous TV reporter (Jeri Ryan). The film was directed by Patrick Lussier (DRACULA II: ASCENSION, DRACULA III: LEGACY, MY BLOODY VALENTINE , TRICK), from a script by Lussier and Joel Soisson.
