George Hamilton is set to vamp it up again for laughs as the producer of a new comedy horror sequel of his hit film Love At First Bite.

It has been 20 years since the movie star played Count Vladimir Dracula in the cult 1979 movie and now he's back for more blood with a camp sequel called "Batrimony: Love At Second Bite".

"I broke two or three ribs. I thought I was Errol Flynn. I swung in to get the dragon's heart and it wa...
