- 'Winona Ryder' (qv) saw the script when it was originally going to be made
as a TV movie, directed by 'Michael Apted' (qv). She took the script to
'Francis Coppola' (qv), whom she had not spoken to since withdrawing
from "The Godfather: Part III" (qv) due to exhaustion six months earlier.
Coppola agreed to make the film, and Apted stayed on as executive producer.
- In an attempt to elicit more emotion, Coppola shouted ``whore'' and ``slut''
while filming the scene when Van Helsing catches Mina with Dracula.
- 'Anthony Hopkins' (qv) also plays Chesare, the priest who tells Dracula that
Elisabeta's soul is damned.
