Fresh winner of the Academy Award for Best Director for Nomadland, a film that also took home the figurines for Best Film and Best Actress in a Fraces McDormand, the very launched and noble Chloe Zhao he told the microphones of Variety some news on his two new projects: The Eternals and Dracula.

Speaking first of all about the new and expected cinecomic by Marvel Studios, Zhao revealed:

We are now in the final stages of post-production. Just like with a sculpture, you never want to finish the job. You just want to continue until they tell you that you can no longer continue “. As we suspected, in fact, a first trailer for the film should soon be released with protagonisti Richard Madden e Salma Hayek, whose theatrical release is scheduled for next November 3, 2021.

Speaking instead of Universal’s announced Dracula, described as “a futuristic sci-fi western“, the author stated:

I like that this is a little confusing, looking at Dracula. It’s a bit like looking at a Jessica Bruder book and really seeing inside the pages, discovering the meanings behind every word and every statement. I’m a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s book and wanted to see what essence I could find behind the story of Dracula and then be able to reimagine this beloved character that I also love very much. I love complicated characters“.

And it still continues on Dracula:

For me it was a very important book. Immortality is something that I started exploring with The Eternals, and now it has become an element that I want to question and understand as much as possible “.

When they ask her if Dracula will be his next movie after The Eternals, she finally replies:

“I honestly don’t know. Now I just want to go back to my chickens and my dogs. I hope they still remember me. Then we’ll see.”
