Filmmaker Andre Ovredal (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) wants to direct The Last Voyage of The Demeter.
The film has just docked at Amblin Pictures and Bradley Fischer, Mike Medavoy, and Arnold Messer have already been named as producers.
So what is the film about?
In Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula, Demeter was the name of the ship that carried Dracula from Transylvania to London. The ship washed up on shore with one survivor in the novel. The script for The Last Voyage of the Demeter was written in 2002 by Bragi Schut and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, it “tells the tale of that journey, in which the crew is slaughtered one by one by a mysterious passenger.”
This is not the first time the project has found a port somewhere though. It was previously at Phoenix Pictures, Millennium Films, and more. Maybe Ovredal and Amblin Pictures will help the film to finally set sail. (THR)
