Counterfeiters Director Looking Into The Last Voyage of the Demeter

Dracula’s voyage from Transylvania to London has always been glossed over by the cinema. We all know a bloodbath took place on the ship carrying him, his coffin, and of course his native soil, but we never actually ever got to see what happened for more than a couple of minutes. With The Last Voyage of the Demeter gearing up for production, a certain director has been eying the promising property.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Stefan Ruzowitzky, the Austrian director behind Oscar-winning foreign film The Counterfeiters, is in negotiations to helm this latest carnage-filled telling of the Count’s exploits for Phoenix Pictures.

The script, written by Season of the Witch‘s Bragi Schut over a decade ago, places the ship’s voyage center stage in a tale that (much like the original Alien) will illustrate for viewers what happens when a not-so-human passenger slaughters its transporters one-by-one.

Bring it on!

    This has potential to be really very good. I’m aboard.

    I’ve always wanted to see the tale of that journey told. This is great news. THE COUNTERFEITERS was an amazing piece of work, so this has me very excited.

    It was the best part of the Dracula novel, always annoyed me that no film covered it in depth.
