Dracula is coming to Northern Ireland - Luke Evans' upcoming performance as the blood-sucking Count will shoot in the country.

The horror movie remake will be filmed in the city from August to November (13).

Joe Caracciolo, the executive producer of Dracula, tells the Irish Independent, "Filming Dracula in Northern Ireland allows us to capture the extraordinary beauty and topography that resemble the European backdrop in which this story takes place. We are very much looking forward to bringing Dracula to Northern Ireland."
