Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace may deal with Dracula on The Last Voyage of the Demeter

When she first hit Hollywood a couple of months ago, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, etc.) was reported to be immediately pursued for several high-profile projects, leading everyone to wonder which one she might do. From the way things are going, she could actually end up doing a whole bunch of them.

Rapace has already joined the SHERLOCK HOLMES sequel and her name has been linked with Ridley Scott's new ALIEN and the HANSEL AND GRETEL action movie, and now she's apparently boarding another project she was initially considered for, THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER.

According to the LA Times, Noomi will join Sir Ben Kingsley and an as-yet-uncast male lead in the terror tale from Oscar-winning director Stefan Ruzowitzky (THE COUNTERFEITERS), about the doomed ship that transported Dracula's coffin to England. They say Rapace will play "a stowaway on the boat, which according to legend arrived at its port with no survivors, prompting speculation that the vampire corpse made a little mayhem."

Extra Tidbit: There was an interesting piece on Rapace in the new EW issue, but you can read it online HERE.

They just had to find a way to squeeze a female lead into an all-male cast, didn't they? It makes about as much sense as Mary Elizabeth Winstead in 'The Thing'.

Cool idea!

I love it...this part of the story is always so glossed over. Even in the novel, the level of detail was just enough to whet your interest, but promised so much story behind it.

I think zooming in on this one thing, which was a months-long voyage, will make an EXCELLENT story!

i'm reading Dracula on my kindle now (free public domain books ftw) and i agree with Invidtus that the Demeter logs were quite interesting, and because they weren't in the Coppola movie (which i love), i was able to get more out of the words than just picturing keanu's horrible accent or whatever.

I was pleasantly surprised when I got my EW mag. She has a couple of great pics in it, including the one above. Great article. I hope she is making great choices for her film roles.
