Picture of Dorian Gray The Movie....Again?

Over the years, there have been no less than 6 screen adaptations of Oscar Wilde's classic novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray". Well, now comes a new one called simply DORIAN GRAY which looks to be intended as something of a horror movie. However, I find it hard to take this trailer seriously, given the chorus-of-the-damned music and the fact that Dorian, in response to a question about his youthful good looks, actually says the line "if I tell you I'd have to kill you". Hmmm--is that the best they could come up with? Not sure I'll be seeing this one but the preview is sort of a hoot....and Ben Barnes is a fairly hot representation of eternal youth.
