Dracula Untold 2 Update (12/20/16):
So it looks like following the release of the new trailer for Tom Cruise’s The Mummy that Dracula Untold 2 is likely not going to happen. Universal Studios wants to reboot all of their monster franchises to be in a single world, and while Dracula Untold could fit in to that, they want The Mummy to be the starting point. I kinda get this. I don’t like it, but Cruise is going to likely be the anchor of these films, sort of like Robert Downey Jr. in Marvel’s films. And he wouldn’t want to play second fiddle to Dracula Untold, no matter how good it could be.
Plus, who knows if Dracula will end up being the villain in the crossover monster film? It seems totally plausible, as Dracula is the most famous and dangerous of the monsters, but it’s still too bad.
Maybe (fingers crossed), if The Mummy bombs, we’ll get our sequel to Dracula Untold after all. Keep voting to see the follow up! We might be able to show Universal that there’s plenty of demand for Luke Evans to continue kicking butt!
Latest Dracula Untold 2 News (9/27/16):
Luke Evans just gave an interview where he mentioned the potential for a shared universe between his Dracula Untold flick, Tom Cruise’s Mummy and the other potential monster films that Universal has in their stable. He said their have been continuing conversations, and with the potential for The Rock to play the Wolfman and Javier Bardem to play Frankenstein’s monster it could happen pretty soon. Most likely there’ll be plans drawn up and some tentative story ideas drafted but not executed upon until the Mummy movie comes out and (hopefully) crushes it at the box office to spur on the decision to expand this universe. That said, even with a successful Mummy movie we may not sequel a mash up. It could end up coming down to Tom Cruise and if that franchise can stand on its own. He might just want to keep fighting mummies and not want to link his films with the others. He’s a powerful dude. That said, if his Mummy leads to a Dracula Untold sequel, I’m up for it!
Dracula Untold 2 Poll: Would you see a Dracula Untold sequel??
Dracula Untold 2 is a potential sequel to the 2014 moderately successful film exploring the origins of Vlad Dracula, blending both real-life elements of Vlad the Impaler with some completely made up crap about Dracula getting her powers to fight people from Turkey. So he became a vampire and fed on the Turks… IT WAS REALLY A THANKSGIVING ORIGIN!
Dracula Untold 2
Director Gary Shore has said he thinks there’s so much history to explore in a sequel that he isn’t quite sure where to start, but the idea would be to bridge the gap between the Vlad we encountered in Dracula Untold with the classic Dracula from Bram Stoker (tie in some other undead, like the walkers from Zombieland 2, and I’ll be even MORE excited). Luke Evans is said to be pretty interested in a Dracula Untold sequel as well, saying he’s been working hard for quite a while, and is happy to see the success his first film has enjoyed. He kind of half reminds me of Kate Beckinsale pre-Underworld. She’d been around for a while, was talented and on the cusp of mainstream success, but it took a cool action flick about vampires to move her past supporting roles. I think Evans has more potential than Beckinsale, but there’s a definite similarity.
Dracula Untold 2 Director
Gary Shore directed the first film, and has expressed interest in returning for the sequel. Will he direct Dracula Untold 2? Not sure, but this is a franchise that I think you could treat the director as less than essential. Think Fast and Furious. Heck, Evans was IN one of those! Do you care who directs them? OF COURSE NOT! If you’re seeing Fast and Furious movies, you likely aren’t even aware that films aren’t real. This isn’t like the Big Hero 6 sequel, where you actually want the original team involved all the way.
Dracula Untold Sequel Writers
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless wrote Dracula Untold, and will likely return for the second, but if I may suggest another option, how about bringing back Bram Stoker? I know he’s dead, but they should have the science these days to bring him back, much like a vampire, so he can give his own take on the original vampire’s origins! What? You don’t think it’s possible? READ A BOOK, BRO.
Or they could hire the writers of Vampire Academy 2. Why not? They CLEARLY know vampires! Or not.

Dracula Untold 2 Release Date
The Dracula Untold 2 release date is currently unknown, but we believe it’ll come in 2017 or possibly early 2018. No greenlight has been given.
Dracula Untold 2 Cast & Stars
The cast of Dracula Untold 2 will likely not have a whole lot of returning faces, other than Luke Evans, but that kinda works and makes Dracula sort of aJames Bond-esque character.
- Luke Evans – Evans played the titular anti-hero Vlad Dracula, and while he has a lot of potential as a vampire, he wasn’t exactly playing the version we’ve seen on screen in the past.
- Samantha Barks – Barks’ character in the first film was cut to improve the overall pacing of the film, but she was to play Baba Yaga, a folklore witch. She was in Les Miserables and is both beautiful and a darn good singer. Maybe she’ll sing her way into Dracula’s heart, in a TOTALLY UNTOLD way!
- Sarah Gadon – I could see Gadon returning as Mirena, maybe moreso in flashbacks to show Dracula’s tortured history.
Best Actor/Actress in Dracula Untold 2
Luke Evans is easily the best actor who we can guarantee will be in the Dracule Untold Sequel, and he’s a pretty darn good actor overall. He has a cool look, not unlike your’s truly, but with less of my rugged handsomeness.
Worst Actor/Actress in Dracula Untold 2
Well, I can say if Charles Dance returns, I’ll NEVER say he’s the worst actor in the film, because he’s Tywin Lannister, and he’ll have me killed! THEY ALWAYS PAY THEIR DEBTS!

Potential Dracula Untold 2 Plotlines
Dracula Untold 2 Plot Option 1
The film opens on Dracula feeding from a menstruating woman, hating himself while also loving the taste. Drac whispers that he will see her again in a month, and she thanks him. But a bad guy appears! Another Turkish army has come to his land to take over, and while the women love him for his… service… every month, their lack of a need for tampons doesn’t mean the rest of the townsfolk aren’t scared. They say they won’t fight for him, and Dracula has lost his people! What is he to do? Well, obviously he goes on a reputation-building campaign, not unlike many politicians, but he goes for the people’s true love: baseball. Vlad turns into a bat, but not the flying kind. As a long wooden stick used to whack balls, Vlad becomes loved by his people, sort of like the bat from The Natural, and they play a massive pickup game of baseball against the Turks, who are notoriously good at playing ball, but are also well known for playing dirty. They sweep the knee of Dracula’s best hitter, and he transforms back into a man and proceeds to eat every one. Then he runs the bases for the last 15 minutes while various Queen songs play.
Dracula Untold Sequel Plot Option 2
Dracula regrets becoming a vampire and joins a support group full of millenial-like other monsters, such as Frankenstein’s monster, Kevin Bacon from Footloose, a reverse werewolf (a wolf who becomes a man during the full moon) and several women. They chit chat for most of the film before Dracula literally dies of boredom. He joins the audience (that’s YOU!) in the afterlife where they discuss much better storylines for a Dracula Untold sequel.
Will Dracula Untold 2 Be Worth Seeing?
Heck yes! Especially if it follows either of my potential storylines! And even if they go the typical Hollywood route and make it another action/fantasy film (SO TYPICAL) it’ll still be pretty good. Most likely.
Dracula Untold 2 Box Office Forecast
The first actually did a lot better than anticipated, but that’s mainly due to the international box office, which helped the film make a total of $221 million. On a $70 million dollar budget, that isn’t too bad, but also not amazing. I’d expect the Dracula Untold 2 Box Office to be a fair bit lower.
Final Thoughts on Dracula Untold 2
Come on. It’s Dracula Untold 2! It’s gotta be good! They never make sequels to bad movies (Grown Ups 3, I Am Legend 2, and National Treasure 3 not withstanding). I have every faith in a sequel to Dracula Untold.
