It was revealed yesterday that an official sequel to Bram Stoker's novel Dracula will be released in October. What makes this an official sequel as opposed to the many other novelizations of Dracula's escapades is that it has been penned by Stoker's great grandnephew Dacre Stoker along with screenwriter Ian Holt. What further makes this official is that it has the backing of Stoker estate, something they haven't done since the first film adaptation starring Bela Lugosi. The book is entitled Dracula: The Un-Dead and will include characters and plot threads culled from Bram Stoker's original notes. The novel is already being fished around to studios in Hollywood. Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt will be appearing at a panel at next weekend's San Diego Comic-Con to build buzz about the impending release, happening between July 23 and 26
