Los Angeles: Writers and producers of the hit detective series Sherlock are reuniting for a new take on the Bram Stoker vampire classic Dracula. Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat will write the series, and Sue Vertues Hartswood Films will produce.

Dracula will adopt the same format as Sherlock, with a miniseries run of feature-length episodes, reports variety.com.

Sherlock propelled actor Benedict Cumberbatch to international stardom for his portrayal of Holmes. With scripts not yet written, casting is yet to happen for Dracula.

Moffat and Gatiss last worked together for Sherlock but have said there are no current plans for a new series of Sherlock. However, they have not ruled out returning to write more episodes in the future.

It is not yet clear whether, like Sherlock and Dracula will have a modern-day British setting. Stoker's 1897 novel has Holmes attempt to move from Transylvania to England in his search for new blood.

The new Dracula won't be the first attempt in recent years to adapt the Gothic horror story for TV. London-based Carnival, producers of Downton Abbey, made Dracula in 2013. The show ran for only one season.
