David Slade wants everyone to know that his interest in vampires is NOT just a phase.
Director David Slade, he of 30 Days of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipsewants everyone to know that his interest in vampires is NOT just a phase. His next project, also about vampires, and not dumb dinosaurs or super-heroes, is called The Last Voyage Of The Demeter, about the ship in Bram Stoker's Dracula that is found ravaged by the famous vampire. The movie is supposed to be Aliens-style horror as the crew of the Demeter are picked off by Dracula.
Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley are both attached to the project but it' unknown if they're still going to do it or not, especially if the filming conflicts with Prometheus. I'm hoping this means that Kingsley is supposed to play Dracula, which would be awesome and a shame if it doesn't happen. (via The Playlist)
