Better stock up on stakes and garlic, Hollywood -- it looks like vampire fever is here to stay; just ask Brad Pitt, the latest Hollywood heavyweight to fall victim to the bloodsucking bug.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Pitt's production company, Plan B, is set to produce 'Vlad', a revamp (pardon the pun) of Dracula's origin story. The action-packed project will focus on the Count's humble beginnings as Prince Vlad the Impaler, a bloodthirsty Romanian tyrant who had a habit of impaling his victims on large wooden stakes.
