Kate Beckinsale Takes Bite Into 'Van Helsing'[Monday, November 25th, 2002]
The Universal Pictures project pits Jackman, in the role of vampire hunter Dr. Van Helsing, against three creatures from the studio's vintage horror years -- Dracula, Frankenstein and the Wolf Man. The story reimagines the studio's monsters in a late Victorian drama, taking Dr. Van Helsing to Eastern Europe in a quest to vanquish the creatures.
Beckinsale will play Anna, daughter of a family committed to the pursuit of Dracula.
Stephen Sommers will direct from his own script. Production starts in January, and the studio has already staked out a release date of May 21, 2004.
