The Invisible Man, starring Elisabet Moss, has turned out to be a successful outing, with predominantly positive reviews from both the audience and critics. The director of the film, Leigh Whannell, who is known for co-creating the Saw franchise and directing Insidious 3 and Upgrade, has revealed that he would like to make a modern reboot of Dracula

In a recent interview, Leigh Whannel revealed the reason why he would choose Dracula for a reboot. He is quoted as saying, “I think I would try to get at the essence of what makes Dracula scary, which, to me, is his lack of mercy. He needs to drink blood. What parallels in life can you think of that equate to someone without mercy. It’s a psychopath, right?”

He also added, “I would take the character right back to that and be like, I’m going to make the psychopath version of this. The person who just doesn’t give a f**k. Maybe he drinks blood but beyond that, there’s no capes, no lightning, no fog, no wolves. It’s just a psychopath who drinks blood.”

However, Leigh Whannell has not stated that he is currently working on any reboot of Dracula currently. But given the impressive success of The Invisible Man, Leigh has a good chance at rebooting the classic monster.
