'Sherlock' team to adapt 'Dracula' for the BBC

'Sherlock' team to adapt 'Dracula' for the BBC

According to Variety, "Doctor Who" and "Sherlock" creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are teaming up with Sue Vertue's Hartswood Films to produce the new TV show.

Sherlock may be over for now, but Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are reuniting for another literary classic with a brand new Dracula series.

While Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat plan to write Dracula no real work has actually begun as the two men are now completing solo projects.

There's no word yet as to whether the Dracula miniseries will adapt the modern London feel of Sherlock, but the pair proved their competence at period dramas in the 2016 Sherlock Christmas special, "The Abominable Bride".

The future of Universal's "Dark Universe" franchise is now uncertain following the lukewarm release of The Mummy in theaters; but fans of one of the most popular classic monsters may soon be able to get their fix on the small screen!

Are you excited to see Moffat and Gatiss' new vision of Dracula? Gatiss is now working on a movie The Favourite, while Moffat is finishing his final run as a show maker on the tenth season of 2005 revival of Doctor Who.

Moffat first revealed his desire to collaborate with Gatiss again post-Sherlock at the Radio Times Covers Party earlier this year, saying: "That is because I love him". It's unclear if the new adaptation will bring the immortal vampire into a contemporary setting, or if this Dracula will return to his more Victorian-era roots.

Debuting in Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula, the iconic vampire has appeared in more than 200 films, but far fewer television series. Moffat is now showrunner on Doctor Who, but will be stepping down from that role at the end of the year.

Even actor Andrew Scott who plays the character of Moriarty in the detective series has also said that fans should not expect another season of "Sherlock" soon.

The question for the Dracula series is: will it be a modernized version like Sherlock was?
