Noomi Rapace has won yet another role, and is now attached to Stefan Ruzowitzky's The Last Voyage of Demeter. According to the LA Times, Rapace is up for a main role in the film, which chronicles the ill-fated final journey of the ship, carrying Dracula’s coffin from Transylvania to England.
In Bram Stoker’s original story, the Russian vessel washes aground with its crew missing, presumed dead and only one actual corpse aboard [besides the undead passenger] – that of the captain, lashed to the helm. The ship’s log recounts strange events aboard that lead to most of the crew abandoning her. Rapace is apparently playing a stowaway with Ben Kingsley reportedly also ready to jump aboard the movie, and a lead actor in the process of being cast by Ruzowitzky.
