Simon Oakes, the CEO of the film production company Hammer, has revealed that they are looking into the possibility of making brand new versions of both the Dracula and the Frankenstein movies. Simon admitted that they were looking to make a more contemporary take on the Dracula movie, with the film likely to be set in London.

Oakes explained, “We can’t really tell you much about it but we really are looking at it. I’ve been saying that we’d never remake the films per se, but we would do our own versions of it. Certainly in my time with Hammer we will definitely do a Dracula. We will do a Frankenstein if we can find a route in. It’s about finding a route in that makes it your film.”
 
He added, “There’s a number of Draculas going on at the moment - there’s a Vlad the Impaler film, a few other ones around, but we have a sense of what we’d like to do. It will be a London-based Dracula.” Hammer’s latest movie to hit the big screen is The Woman in Black, which stars Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe.
