George Hamilton is reportedly trying to resurrect love-beseeching Count Vladimir Dracula .
The orange-skinned charmer will produce a sequel to his 1979 hit â€˜â€™Love At First Biteâ€™â€™. The 1979 hit has Count Dracula moving to New York to find his Bride, after being forced to move out of his Transylvanian castle.
Hamiltonâ€™s hoping to entice the Bella, Edward & Jacob fans to the new film.
“It’s terrific. It’s all about old world school of Dracula in the Bela Lugosi 1940s up against the Twilight felons with humorâ€, Hamilton told WENN. â€˜â€™It’s hard to do but it’s great fun.”
And Hamilton thinks the time is perfect for another vampire movie spoof: “I think ‘Twilight’ is a wonderful series of books. It’s so important for these young girls with hormonal changes and this love that’s worth giving your life for. But now I have a find a way to bring my ‘Love At First Bite’ character into that kind of story and make it funny and not be at all like ‘Twilight’ and I think I found a way to do that.”
The new film would be titled â€œBatrimony: Love At Second Biteâ€.
I wouldnâ€™t be surprised if someone squishes Hamiltonâ€™s plans for the sequel and instead greases the wheels on a remake. Donâ€™t get me wrong, I love â€œFirst Biteâ€ (in fact I remember it being a film I’d rent out regularly on VHS) but those any younger than me will probably struggle to even remember it, let alone want to lay down their pennies to see a sequel to it.
