Time to throw another vampire movie on the pile

Because you asked for it, another vampire movie is on the way.

As if we didn't have enough of the same movie being made (see Snow White, Beauty and the Beast), here comes another life sucking Dracula film. Sony Pictures recently nabbed a pitch from MIRROR, MIRROR and MACHINE GUN PREACHER scribe Jason Keller.

The only thing that is known about this project is that it will be a period origin story on the Dracula mythology. Sony also intends to turn it into a franchise.

What other vampire movies are coming our way? I knew you would ask:

DRACULA YEAR ONE- The horror tale is set to take place in Romania during the Turkish invasion as Vlad the Impaler goes to the greatest of lengths to fight for his homeland -- even if it means selling his soul and becoming forever doomed as a creature of the night. Directed by Howard Shore and written by Matt Sazama & Burk Sharpless.

THE STRAIN adaptation- A Boeing 777 arrives at JFK and is on its way across the tarmac, when it suddenly stops dead. All window shades are pulled down. All lights are out. All communication channels have gone quiet. Crews on the ground are lost for answers, but an alert goes out to the CDC. Dr. Eph Goodweather, head of their Canary project, a rapid-response team that investigates biological threats, gets the call and boards the plane. What he finds makes his blood run cold. In a pawnshop in Spanish Harlem, a former professor and survivor of the Holocaust named Abraham Setrakian knows something is happening. And he knows the time has come, that a war is brewing.So begins a battle of mammoth proportions as the vampiric virus that has infected New York begins to spill out into the streets. Eph, who is joined by Setrakian and a motley crew of fighters, must now find a way to stop the contagion and save his city--a city that includes his wife and son--before it is too late. Based on the book trilogy by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.

THE PASSAGE- A contemporary vampire film in which government experiments on terminally ill people launches a plague of vampires. Adapted from Justin Cronin's novel by Matt Reeves.
