THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER may get Viggo Mortensen to star

We haven’t heard much about this film. We do know that it deals with the ship that took Dracula in Bram Stoker’s novel to England. What happened to the crew during those weeks at sea? We hope to find out!

 

News has just hit us that Viggo Mortensen has been offered the lead role in the film. No word on whether he has accepted or not.

Neil Marshall(Dog Soldiers, Doomsday) was originally attached to direct. The story of the doomed the ship that carried Dracula’s coffin from Transylvania to England – for Millennium Films. Sir Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace were also said to be on board as  the ship’s captain and a stowaway named Anna Billington, but nothing was ever officially confirmed.

The latest script draft by Lowell Cauffiel will “place the voyage center stage in a tale that is reminiscent of the first movie in the Alien franchise, in which a crew is slaughtered one-by-one by a mysterious passenger.”
