Move over, Robert Pattinson, Brad Pitt wants your vampire crown. Twilight studio Summit is going back to the classics, with its new vampire project, focusing on Vlad the Impaler's little-seen days as a young vampire.

Pitt's Plan B company will be producing Vlad, which focuses on the early life of the inspiration behind the Dracula myth. Written by Queer As Folk and Sons of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam, music video director Anthony Mandler is in talks to direct the project and head up a rewrite in order to bring it closer to the studio's vision of "a visually edgy and radical period movie" similar to 300. We can hardly wait... Oh, okay, we can.
