The star of the original movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Noomi Rapace, has signed on for her first English-language genre project with The Last Voyage of Demeter, according to The Los Angeles Times.

The movie centers around the harrowing journey of Dracula's coffin from Transylvania to England. The site reports that Noomi Rapace will portray a stowaway on the boat transporting the coffin. The legend goes that when the boat arrived at the port, no survivors were found on board. Ben Kingsley has also joined the cast in an unspecified role, although it was said a lead actor has not been chosen yet.

The Counterfeiters director Stefan Ruzowitzky will direct from a script by Bragi F. Schut. Phoenix Pictures' Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer (Shutter Island) are producing the movie.

No production schedule was released for this new project.
