LOS ANGELES, July 12 (UPI) -- Universal Studios, which made the 1931 Hollywood classic "Dracula," is returning to the crypt to examine the vampire's failed upbringing in a new movie.

Writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have been contracted to work on the eerie project, tentatively titled "Dracula Year Zero," zap2it.com reported.

The movie will tell the "true" story of the "flawed hero in a tragic love story set in the dark age of magic and war."

The novel, written by Bram Stoker in 1897, inspired several hundred films about the most famous vampire of them all.
