Jude Law may star in the upcoming adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, it has been reported.

Law, who is currently shooting the Sherlock Holmes sequel, is reportedly in talks to join director David Slade's next project.

Bleeding Cool reports that the movie, titled The Last Voyage of the Demeter, follows the ship that transports the Transylvanian count to the shores of England. Over the course of the voyage, which is documented by reports in the captain's log, the vampire slowly slaughters the ship's entire crew.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy) are also attached for supporting roles in the film, which is being described as something akin to Alien.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter marks Slade's third major vampire movie in recent years, after 30 Days of Night and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
