Universal Pictures announced today that Dracula, which is currently shooting in Begrade, Serbia, has been given the new title Dracula Untold. We reported last month that the studio issued an October 4, 2014 release date for this horror remake.

Luke Evans stars as the title character alongside Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Samantha Barks, Art Parkinson and Thor Kristjansson. The plot is a hybrid of Bram Stoker's legendary novel, and the true story of Vlad the Impaler, the historical figure that Dracula was originally based on.

Gary Shore makes his directorial debut on Dracula Untold, working from a screenplay by Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless.
