“In extremely disappointing news, it looks like Karyn Kusama’s Mina Harker just got dusted. The Jennifer’s Body director was set to direct a woman-centered take on Dracula which would focus on the novel’s heroine Mina Harker. The film would have seen Jasmine Cephas Jones (Hamilton, Blindspotting) in the title role, as Harker encounters Dracula in present-day Los Angeles. It’s a surprising turn for the Blumhouse and Miramax project, which was apparently only 3 weeks away from shooting. Miramax was said to have left the project over creative differences with Kusama. Phil Hay, one of the film’s co-writers, tweeted about the film’s cancellation.”

Sadly, just seven years after the famous “Ay-Ohs” of that day, that same stage became the setting for Mercury’s musical eulogy.”
