“I’m having a wonderful time with the character Vlad. He’s been around for eons and he’s a pretty crabby guy. Basically, he reminds me of me, ” Brooks said in a statement.
The story revolves around Dracula’s father Vlad showing up at his castle unexpectedly for a family visit.
Sandler had asked Brooks to take the part in the sequel. Brooks says he responded by saying, “Adam, are you sitting down? It’s a little shocking — I am your father.'”

Audiences can expect the two Jewish actors, Brooks and Sandler, to infuse a great deal of clichéd Jewish family angst material in the film.
Brooks has had previous experience with the Dracula story having directed 1995’s spoof Dracula – Dead and Loving It. In that movie he already got in some practice putting on a mock European accent. As he said, “I had that with me. And I didn’t have to make it older because I’m almost 100, so I played it out of my own voice. That Middle-European Transylvanian sound is sweet, it’s cute, and if you believe in vampirism, it’s correct.”

The movie set to be released in late 2015. The first one came out in 2012 and made more than $300 million worldwide.
