Rutger Hauer is having a little Mickey Rourke-style comeback. Sure, he may not be starring in the next Aronofksy film (unless he gets cast in WOLVERINE which isn’t all that unbelievable given that he appeared in BATMAN BEGINS) but he his following his role in the Sundance hit HOBO WIOTH A SHOTGUN by playing the iconic vampire hunter, Professor Abraham van Helsing, for genre icon Dario Argento’s DRACULA 3D. The film is set to commence production in May.

Hauer himself played a bloodsucker in 1992′s BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, as the film’s primary villain Lothos. He is of course best known for his roles in BLADE RUNNER and THE HITCHER, with more recent, notable appearances in SIN CITY and Nolan’s first BATMAN.

He can currently be seen in THE RITE with Anthony Hopkins and has five films in various states of production.
