Surfing high on her high visibility gained from playing the anti-social Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium series of movies (of which The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo was the first chapter), Noomi Rapace is in talks to star in The Last Voyage of Demeter. If she signs and the movie moves forward Rapace would play a female stowaway onboard the ill-fated vessel.
Also in talks to star in the film is Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley (Prince of Persia, Ghandi).- The Los Angeles Times. Comment on this Scoop (0)

Friday the 13th remake director Marcus Nispel is in talks to helm The Last Voyage of Demeter, the offshoot of Bram Stoker's Dracula tale penned by Bragi Schut Jr. Robert Schwentke (Flightplan, The Time Traveler's Wife) was formerly attached to direct.
Schut's script was inspired by the section of Stoker's book which briefly chronicled the arrival of a deserted merchant vessel at the docks of Whitby. The Demeter was the ship that brought Dracula to England and during the vessel's ill-fated voyage its crew were picked off one-by-one by the count. Only the body of the Demeter captain was found by the dockside workers at Whitby, tied to the ship's steering wheel. Schut's screenplay expands on the final voyage of the ship as they are stalked by the vampire. [Full story]- Variety. Comment on this Scoop (0)
