Jude Law circling THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER
Jude Law is in talks to star in THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER for director David Slade, according to BleedingCool.
The film has yet to receive full financing, but Slade (30 DAYS OF NIGHT and THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE) has been tapped to helm. The project has been in development for almost a decade and will finally be launched via Phoenix Pictures (BLACK SWAN).
Law would star opposite Ben Kinglsey and Noomi Rapace in the film based on a section from the Bram Stoker novel about the ship that transported Dracula from Transylvania to London.
"The Last Voyage of the Demeter follows the ill-fated crew aboard the merchant ship Demeter which carried Dracula's coffin from Transylvania to England only to arrive at port with a ship's log telling of everyone on board getting slaughtered one-by-one by a mysterious passenger."
Law is currently filming Steven Soderbergh's CONTAGION and will next be seen on screen in SHERLOCK HOLMES 2 (which also stars Rapace). I really like period horror/thrillers and thinks this cast is getting better by the day.
