Tom Cruise to kill vampires in ‘Van Helsing’

HollywoodNews.com: First Hugh Jackman, now Tom Cruise?

It turns out Universal might be making another go-round with its “Van Helsing” movie franchise. This time Cruise is allegedly involved per Vulture.

He will produce and star as the vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

Previously, Guillermo del Toro was attached to direct the film, but is busying himself with “At The Mountains Of Madness” for Universal instead.

Van Helsing is known from Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.” In 2004, Universal made “Van Helsing” directed by Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy”) and starring Jackman in the title role. The film was slotted as an event film to kick off the summer season.

It did fine at the time, making $120 million at the domestic B.O. and another $180 million abroad.

Apparently the Cruise version of “Van Helsing” is unrelated to Sommers’ film.
