Noomi Rapace (Swedish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and sequels) and Ben Kingsley are reportedly in talks to star in horror thriller The Last Voyage of Demeter at Phoenix Pictures.
To be directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky from a script by Bragi Schut Jr., the film is based on a chapter in Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” describing the arrival of the vampire count in England on a cargo ship that has crashed into the rocks at Whitby with no crew and the dead captain lashed to the steering wheel.
Stoker tells the story via the captain’s log of the voyage, which begins in Bulgaria and becomes increasingly disjointed as members of the crew disappear.
Rapace would play a stowaway on the boat. No word on who Kingsley would play.
