As properties such as “True Blood” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” forge a new path into bloody silliness, it's been a spell since any grounded, literary-based portrayals of vampire mythology have hit the screen, with a few notable exceptions. Luckily though, one of the contemporary horror genre's leading directors, Neil Marshall, will tackle Dracula for his latest film, and now he's eyeing a leading man certainly known for gravitas.

Yep, it's one of those projects. You know, the kind of that spend years in development with a variety of filmmakers (in this case Robert Schewentke and Marcus Nispel) coming and going, but with no actual movement happening. Such is the case of "The Last Voyage Of Demeter" that most recently had David Slade set to direct with Noomi Rapace and Ben Kingsley in the lead roles. Not bad right? But even as far back as a year ago, Rapace was casting doubt on whether or not she would be in it and word pretty much went quiet. Alas, it's back to the drawing board.

Despite director David Slade recently taking to Twitter to express his optimism about the prospects for the previously announced vampire-road-film "The Last Voyage Of Demeter," it seems one of his potential stars isn't quite on the same level. 'Dragon Tattoo' star Noomi Rapace has revealed that her burgeoning slate and increasing popularity in Hollywood may be a hurdle too great to overcome for the potential collaboration with Slade.
