The Last Voyage of Demeter
According to Empire Online, Noomi Rapace, whoc became an international sensation for her performance in the title role of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and its two sequels, has been cast in the upcoming film The Last Voyage of Demeter. If you recall, the Demeter is the ill-fated ship which transported Dracula to England in Bram Stoker's novel. The book doesn't go into details on the trip, just that it arrives with no one on board alive, and the captain's body lashed to the wheel. The movie will fill in the blanks as to what happened on board the doomed vessel, but it would seem it will struggle with the curse of the sequel: we already know how it ends, thus lessening the suspense. Still, it could be interesting. The movie will be directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky.
