- THE LAST VOYAGE OF DEMETER
The Last Voyage of the Demeter, a Dracula story, has Neil Marshall (The Decent, Centerion) attached to direct it, Comingsoon.net reports.
Lord of the Rings star Viggo Mortensen has been offered the lead role of Henry Clemens in the film. The news comes from Bloody-Disgusting who also reports that Ben Kingsley is still attached to play the film’s Captain.
Noomi Rapace was also attached to the film at one point in time, however we not sure if she will still be involved in the film.
The story is described as being reminiscent of Ridley Scott's Alien (Not Prometheus).
Bragi Schut wrote the script for the movie over a decade ago.
Lowell Cauffiel wrote the most recent draft, and it tells the story of the Demeter, the name of the ship that transported Dracula from Transylvania to London in Bram Stoker's classic story.
In the novel, the ship washes up on the shores of England, tattered and broken, with one raving mad survivor. The film will tell the tale of that journey, in which a mysterious passenger slaughters the crew one-by-one.
