The announcement about the “Blacula” revival from MGM was broken on the 17th of June. The Louis B. Mayer Studio will adapt a famous blaxploitation figure into the 21st cent. In association with the Bron and Hidden Film Group.
The project will be directed by Deon Taylor, director of the horror-comedy The House Next Door. “‘Blacula’ is undoubtedly one of Black’s most prestigious series, as it has given birth to ground-breaking black-horror movies that have revolutionised the way we saw our people on the big screen,” said Taylor in a statement.
Micah Ranum co-authors the script based on Joan Torres, Raymond Koenig, and Richard Glouner’s initial character in 1972. The actor William Marshall worked on the script to dignify his character, Blacula, as stated in his obituary in The Guardian. He arrived in his royal background, with the name Mamuwalde. This is all we know about the rebooting of “Blacula” so far.
For the reboot “Blacula,” no release date was specified. It’s improbable that the picture is still producing, as a star hasn’t been confirmed. The above mentioned “all-star weekend” and “do not be afraid” by Joseph Sikora from “Ozark” and “Akuma” have Taylor’s three following projects listed on his IMDb.
The “Blacula” reboot seems more like a revival than a continuation of the legacy of the previous two films. “After the 1973 sequence ‘Scream Blacula Scream’ reboots take the original narrative off, and it is put in the metropolis post-Coronavirus epidemic,” says a famous channel.
In Los Angeles, the first two “Blacula” movies were set. This new chapter in the legend of Prince Mamuwalde may be held in a different town to either offer a unique taste to the storey or because the production of films is primarily out of Hollywood. Atlanta might be an ideal environment because it is an American centre of black culture.
The plot summarises the reboot supplied to Variety and makes it look like rebooting underlines those issues very well. “Blacula” has always been political. After Dracula declined to help Mamuwalde end the transatlantic slave trade, Prince Mamuwalde was converted into a Vampire. “Blacula is buried and waking up 200 years later eager to revenge the loss of her ancestors,” reads the synopsis, “and those who took care of her workers and cultures for profit.” It means that Blacula’s attacks are more motivated by politics and aligned with his sympathetic “villains” in “Black Panther” like Killmonger.
