A BRAND NEW Dracula movie is in the works and we’re excited!
The film is based on a passage from Bram Stoker’s novel that was taken from the captain’s log of the Demeter, a ship that brought Dracula to Whitby and found its crew terrified by the mysterious dark presence they were unwittingly transporting in their cargo.
This is the first time that an entire project has been concentrated on only one chapter, despite the fact that the portion of the story has been adapted numerous times in many of the big-screen and TV versions of the novel.
Ahead of the August release of The Final Voyage of the Demeter, one of its performers, David Dastmalchian, who is currently best known for his roles in Marvel’s Ant-Man series, recently talked about how the movie will make viewers’ blood chill. He stated to Collider:
“André [Øvredal] is a student of and child of, grown up on the genre. Horror is his backbone and he is a true monster kid. He has this deep love and affinity for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, as do I. His knowledge of the book and his passion for the characters is so beautiful, and he’s got this really intense and unique vision and a way of telling stories that is so outside of the box. So anyone who’s familiar with his works like Trollhunter, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, you go, “Well, this guy never takes a little swing. He takes a big swing.” He took a huge swing with this film. I think it’s gonna scare the crap out of people, but it’s also gonna be one of those movie experiences that transports you to this other place.”David Dastmalchian
