Work on the project has not begun as of yet as Moffat and Gatiss are both still tied up with individual commitments (the final season of Moffat's tenure on Doctor Who is about to conclude, but he won't officially bow out until this year's Christmas special), but negotiations are already underway with the BBC.
The brains behind the BBC's Sherlock series are to make a new version of Dracula, the corporation has confirmed. But talks are already underway with the BBC - which enjoyed huge success with "Sherlock" - on broadcast rights in the United Kingdom.
Oil prices slip as US rigs rise
Meanwhile, global demand for crude will only jump by 1.4 million barrels a day, led by economic expansion in China and India. Traders noted the Brent front-month contract was at the highest premium since late May over the same WTI contract.
As of now, it's unclear whether it will be adapted to a modern setting and if Cumberbatch will (hopefully) be attached. While details are scarce, Variety is reporting that the show would be in the same format as Sherlock, i.e., a miniseries of sorts with multiple seasons (if the production deal goes through). BBC's global distribution also went a long way towards making Sherlock a worldwide hit, so Dracula seems very likely to end up there. Not so much? Have you stuck with Sherlock all this time? Gatiss also has experience with horror from his adaptation of M.R. James' The Tractate Middoth in addition to co-writing and starring in a ghost story called Crooked House.
Yes, we're getting another Dracula adaptation. At this point, time - which the immortal Dracula has plenty of - will tell. The important thing for the new series is to make Dracula exciting and terrifying again.

There's been no official confirmation of the birth from the couple , and no word on the gender or names. People magazine reports that Beyoncé and Jay Z welcomed their twins earlier this week.
Gatiss played Dracula himself in a radio version of the story that was released past year on the anniversary of the book's publication.
It's clear that Moffat and Gatiss are looking to recapture something of the success of their previous work by tackling another piece of Victorian fiction, and we've no doubt that they'll be able to. Unleash your fangs in the comment section below!
