Viggo Mortensen Offered Lead Role in Dracula Film The Last Voyage of the Demeter

Viggo Mortensen has been offered the lead role of Henry Clemens in the Millennium Films project ‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter,’ Bloody-Disgusting is reporting. The news of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ actor’s potential casting comes after it was previously reported that Ben Kingsley was attached to play the Captain in the film. ‘Prometheus’ star Noomi Rapace is also believed to have a role in the movie, as Anna Billington.

The casting of Mortensen, Kingsley and Rapace, who rose to fame for her portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish/Danish film adaptations of the Millennium series, will majorly be based on Millennium Films’ scheduling. ‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter’ has been in development since 2004, and was previously lined up at Summit and Sony Screen Gems.

‘The Descent’ and ‘Doomsday’ director Neil Marshall is currently on board to helm ‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter,’ in which a ship will carry Dracula’s coffin from Transylvania to England. The latest draft of the film was written by documentary and short film scribe Lowell Cauffiel. The voyage in the movie is said to be reminiscent of the first ‘Alien’ film, in which a crew is slaughtered one-by-one by a mysterious passenger.
