Neil Marshall Boards The Last Voyage of the Demeter
It's been over a year since last there was anything to report on the Dracula tale The Last Voyage of the Demeter, but holy cow, has some really cool news sailed on in. News that has us grinning from ear-to-ear!
According to THR, Neil Marshall, the noted horror filmmaker behind The Descent, is attached to direct the long-gestating Demeter, which is being set up at Millennium Films. The project over the years has attracted such directors as Robert Schwentke and Marcus Nispel. The flick almost left port last year with Twilight: Eclipse helmer David Slade and a cast that included Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace, but the tide turned, forcing the sails to fold.
The script, written by Season of the Witch's Bragi Schut over a decade ago, places the ship's voyage center stage in a story that (much like the original Alien) will illustrate for viewers what happens when a not-so-human passenger slaughters its transporters one-by-one.
