Firth will portray a vampire character in the new movie together with 'Moulin Rouge!' star Nicole Kidman and 'Alice in Wonderland' beauty Mia Wasikowska.

The new role is remarkably different from the actor's most recent performance in "", in which he played stuttering royal King George VI. Screenwriter Wentworth Miller reveals the title of the movie is a nod to Bram Stoker's film "Dracula".

He says, "It's got a lot of elements of the Dracula mythology in its story... It's not a vampire story. It's not about vampires at least with the teeth and the desire to suck your blood but it is a thriller and it is about an individual who preys on the innocent."
