The Last Voyage of the Demeter

While both trying to cash in on a persistent craze and attempting to wipe the glitter off (it’s the herpes of the craft world for a reason), The Descent director Neil Marshall is the latest director ready to embark on The Last Voyage of the Demeter. The cruise will feature a vampire and a captive buffet aboard the high seas. According to a lot of nautical puns in The Hollywood Reporter, Millennium Films is taking the long-gestating script from Bragi Schut (Season of the Witch). It was written a decade ago, which means Schut has worked a long time to earn a single writing credit on a mediocre movie, but now his vision of extrapolating a minor plot point in Bram Stoker‘s classic novel will potentially see the light of day. For whatever reason, the project has attracted several directors (Robert Schwentke, Marcus Nispel, David Slade) and even a set of stars (Ben Kingsley, Noomi Rapace) but has never made it past the development stage. Now, it has a fresh start, an intriguing director, and a lot of potential for a trend that might be in its death throes (again) even if it’s going out with a prolific bang.
