A new piece of fan art for a future Dracula movie imagines Mads Mikkelsen in the starring role. Mikkelsen started off his acting career starring in Danish films but has since grown to become well-known with American audiences as well. Mikkelsen joined two of the biggest film franchises in 2016, playing Galen Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the villain Kaecilius in Doctor Strange. At this point in his career, the actor may be most known for playing the famous serial-killer Hannibal Lectorin Hannibal.
Hollywood has been pumping out movies and TV shows with vampires, and specifically Count Dracula, for decades, with renowned actors like Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, and Gary Oldman playing the character.

Universal started to revamp their line of classic monsters with Dracula Untold in 2014, but that film failed to make a lasting impression with fans and critics
