Care to book passage on the Demeter?

Bloody Disgusting reports that Marcus Nispel, the guy who rebooted Jason, is in talks to direct The Last Voyage of the Demeter.

The Demeter, in case you’re behind on your homework, is the ship that carries Dracula from Europe to England. When it lands in England it is empty except for the body of the Captain who is lashed to the wheel with a cross in his hand.

It’s one of the best parts of the Dracula story and should make a good movie.

“It was no wonder that the coastguard was surprised, or even awed, for not often can such a sight have been seen. The man was simply fastened by his hands, tied one over the other, to a spoke of the wheel. Between the inner hand and the wood was a crucifix, the set of beads on which it was fastened being around both wrists and wheel, and all kept fast by the binding cords. The poor fellow may have been seated at one time, but the flapping and buffeting of the sails had worked through the rudder of the wheel and had dragged him to and fro, so that the cords with which he was tied had cut the flesh to the bone.”
