Viggo Mortensen's name isn't mentioned enough in movie news. He's one of the best actors we have in the business today and any role he's attached to is guaranteed to make us buy a movie ticket. And with this new role he's been offered, we'd be more than happy to sink our teeth into watching him play a part in a new vampire tale.
The Last Voyage of the Demeter
In the original novel of 'Dracula,' the vampire count arrives in London after a lengthy sea voyage from his native Transylvania, during which he made full use of the crew as a food source. Naturally, the men on board The Demeter didn't know that something horrible and undead was living in that coffin in the storage hold and most of them never set foot on dry land again. This segment of the story is getting fleshed out into a movie of its own, to be directed by Neil Marshall.
