The Sherlock team are set to reunite with a Dracula remake for BBC


The writers and producers of the hit BBC series Sherlock, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, will be reuniting to sink their teeth into a classic, Bram Stoker‘s Dracula. Gatiss and Moffat are set to write the series, with Sue Vertue’s Hartswood Films onboard to produce.

While the new series has yet to receive a script, and casting is still a long way off, talks are already underway with BBC. The broadcasting network has seen a massive success with the Sherlock series, which brought a whopping 8.1 million viewers to the network with its fourth season opening.

Much like Sherlock, Dracula will be adapted into a mini-series format, featuring full-length 90-minute episodes. While the show is borrowing its format from the hit BBC series, there is no news yet on whether the classic will also be adapted to the modern-day British setting.

Work is expected to begin on the series upon the completion of the pair’s solo-projects. This will be the first time Gatiss and Moffat collaborate following the last episode of Sherlock which aired in January. The pair has noted that they have no plans for a season five of Sherlock, although nothing has been officially ruled out.

Moffat will be stepping down from his role on Doctor Who following this year’s Christmas special. Earlier this year it was announced that Gatiss will be working on the TV Miniseries Gunpowder, starring Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington

The last time the blood sucking vampire was adapted for the small screen was in 2013 when the producers of Downton Abbey made Dracula for NBC. The show only ran for one season despite receiving a positive response from audiences.

Stay tuned for more news about Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat‘s Dracula as it comes.
