Neill Marshall (“The Descent”) is the latest director to get attached to helm the Dracula film The Last Voyage of the Demeter, Heat Vision | THR reports:
Demeter was the name of the ship that transported Dracula from Transylvania to London in Bram Stoker’s classic tale. In that 1897 novel, the ship washes up on the shores of England, tattered and broken, with one raving-mad survivor. Written a decade ago by Bragi Schut (Season of the Witch), the script tells the tale of that journey, in which the crew is slaughtered one-by-one by a mysterious passenger.
Robert Schwentke, Marcus Nispel and David Slade have all been attached to direct the project in years past.
