    "Blood will draw" and "Blood will be drawn"

    Hello,
    The war is coming and this means blood will be drawn.
    (Don't worry, no war is coming - as far as I know.)

    Can we also say:
    The war is coming and this means blood will draw.

    Some things need a be, as for example:
    The new movie will be released.
    It's not correct to say
    The new movie will release.
    because someone needs to release it.

    Is it the same case with the "blood" sentence?

    Cheers!

    Thanks!

    I'll tell you why I thought it could be right:
    In one action game a message appears after the 1st kill:
    "Player drew the first blood."

    That's why I thought the main sentence I posted is similar.

    No, no blood transfusion.
    But maybe "blood will run" could be an option, too?

    Cheers!

    "Blood will flow" is idiomatic.
