Argento's Count Dracula had not yet been revealed, but Screen Daily is now reporting that Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to play the lead role. While the name may not seem familiar to everyone, he has nearly 100 acting credits which included roles in Wanted, King Kong, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Blade II, and The Pianist.
