Neil Marshall (Centurion, The Descent) has signed on to direct the long-delayed genre tale The Last Voyage of Demeter for Millennium Entertainment.

Bragi F. Schut wrote the original screenplay over a decade ago, which expands on a small portion of Bram Stoker's original Dracula novel. The Demeter was the ship that transported the vampire from Transylvania to London, except the ship washes up on shore with only one survivor left. This story tells the tale of that voyage, where one passenger murdered the ship's crew, one by one.

David Slade was the last filmmaker attached to the project, which had Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley attached to star. It isn't known if the actors are still involved, but it doesn't seem likely.

Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer, and Brad Fischer will produce, although no production schedule was given.
