Director David Slade can't escape vampires, now takes Last Voyage of the Demeter
They say you should stick with what you know, and director David Slade is certainly familiar with bloodsuckers.
After a narrow miss with THE WOLVERINE, the 30 DAYS OF NIGHT and TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE director is keeping the fang theme with the vampire movie THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER, a period terror tale about the doomed ship that transported Dracula's coffin to England.
Sir Ben Kingsley and hot thing Noomi Rapace (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO) are attached, with Noomi playing a stowaway on the boat which, according to legend, arrived at its port with no survivors and rightful suspicions about the occupant in the casket.
The project has been kicking around for quite a while -- Robert Schwentke (RED) and Marcus Nispel (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) were once involved, and Oscar-winner Stefan Ruzowitzky (THE COUNTERFEITERS) just departed.
|Extra Tidbit:||DEMETER has been described as an atmospheric suspense story in the vein of ALIEN -- and Rapace may end up having a schedule conflict with Ridley Scott's unofficial ALIEN prequel PROMETHEUS.|
