Rutger Hauer confirms he will play Van Helsing in Dario Argento's 'Dracula 3D' -- EXCLUSIVE

Rutger-HauerImage Credit: Chelsea Lauren/Getty ImagesRutger Hauer has confirmed to EW that he is set to play Van Helsing in legendary horror director Dario Argento’s new movie, Dracula 3D. “That could be really, really exciting,” said the star of The Hitcher and Blade Runner. “I’m flying to London and when I get there I want to have a talk [with] The Master about what he thinks he gets from me, to see where he lives. I can see 3-D working really well and he’s experimenting with it.” Argento will shoot Dracula 3D in Budapest later this year.

Hauer also revealed he is unlikely to appear in Christopher Nolan’s third Batman movie, The Dark Knight Rises. The actor played the CEO of Wayne Enterprises in the first of Nolan’s Batman films, 2005’s Batman Begins. “I think not,” said Hauer of a possible return to the franchise. “I would have heard about it.”

Hauer will next be seen in Hobo With a Shotgun, a berserk homage to ’80s action movies that opens May 6. You can check out the trailer for that movie below. Be warned, it features blood, violence, swearing, and a general NSFW vibe. Well, it is called Hobo With a Shotgun — not Driving Miss Hobo.

    No reason his character would come back for the third movie– Bruce deposed him at the end of the first movie and gave Fox his job.

    I kind of want to see “Driving Miss Hobo”…

  • kenneth

    Love Rutger, but everything with 3D in the title pretty much sucks coming and going.

  • andy

    It isn’t a tribute to 80’s action films but 80’s gross out slasher/B movies.

    In a related story – Tyler Perry announced his new project DRIVING MISS HO. Perry will be playing all the roles, including the car.

    I’m sorry but you got it so wrong with Amy Adams Oscar dress. She looked gorgous in the sparkling blue dress. Who care what what jewelery she was wearing with it.

    He’ll be great as Van Helsing, they’re both Dutch.

    Love Rutger. Love Dario. But Dario can’t make a movie to save his life these days. Of all the greats (Romero, Argento, Hooper) nobody has lost more of their touch than Dario Argento.

  • Zack

    Ladyhawke and Blind Fury are by far Rutgers best movies. I can watch those over and over again. He is a great actor and is right up there with Jack Nicholson.
