|Eli Roth is a Bastard!|
Eli Roth, in addition to his upcoming The Green Inferno, is in talks to direct the "Dracula" tale Harker, deadline reports.
The script arrives as a spec from Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy and is said to relocate Stoker's tale to England where Jonathan Harker is tracking the monster on behalf of Scotland Yard.
Russell Crowe is attached to headline the project and, while he was originally thought to be playing the Harker role, the site reveals that the actor is actually attached to play Dracula himself.
Production on Harker would likely take place next year with The Green Inferno shooting later this fall.
