Could Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes, Repo Men) be up for a role in The Last Voyage of the Demeter?
Bleeding Cool reports that Law is in talks to join previously cast Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley in the long-gestured Dracula tale to be helmed by David Slade (30 Days of Night, Hard Candy).
The story, penned by Bragi Schut Jr., 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.
“Demeter” is the name of the ship that carried Dracula’s coffin from Transylvania to England in Bram Stoker’s classic tale.
