Sam Worthington has been confirmed to lead the new thriller Dracula: Year Zero.

The film reportedly combines the myth of vampire Dracula with the real-life historical character Prince Vlad of Transylvania.

The Avatar star will play Prince Vlad, who is believed to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Directed by Dark City’s Alex Proyas, the film follows Prince Vlad the Impaler as he battles the Turks and tries to stop them taking all the young male children, including his own, after they invade Transylvania.
