Director David Slade appears to have developed an insatiable thirst for vampire flicks. The man behind Summit Entertainment’s record-breaking tween sensation Twilight: Eclipse and Ghost House Pictures’ much more respectable gorefest 30 Days of Night is now set to shoot The Last Voyage of Demeter. He replaces Austrian director Stefan Ruzowitzky.
Loosely based on Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula,” The Last Voyage of Demeter details the horrific events that occurred on the ship that transported Dracula from Transylvania to London. Sir Ben Kingsley and Swedish actress Noomi Rapace are attached to star.
Rapace , who scored rave reviews for her portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish film adaptations of author Stieg Larsson’s The Millennium Trilogy (”Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” Girl Who Played with Fire,” Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest”), has arrived in Hollywood on a gravy train with biscuit wheels. The 31-year-old starlet will next be seen in Guy Ritche’s Sherlock Holmes 2 and Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.
