Universal's Dracula signs a witch, an assassin and Drac's son!

Universal's reboot of DRACULA, starring Luke Evans as the titular bloodsucker, has just brought aboard a handful of new faces. In the process, we've learned a bit more about Dracula's world and who will be inhabiting it.

According to Heat Vision, Samantha Barks (LES MISERABLES; pictured below) has been cast as "a baba yaga, a beautiful young woman who turns into a savage witch."

Art Parkinson (who plays young Rickon Stark in "Game of Thrones"; pictured above) has been cast as Dracula's son.

Icelandic actor Thor Kristjansson (HARPOON) has been cast as "Bright Eyes, an Eastern European taken as a slave as a young boy and now a vicious assassin in the Ottoman Army."

DRACULA, directed by Gary Shore, also stars Dominic Cooper and Sarah Gadon. The film is an origin story charting the Transylvanian prince's descent into eternal damnation. It hits theaters on August 8, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Let's not confuse this with NBC's own take on "Dracula", which airs this Fall.
