The Last Voyage of the Demeter is officially set to launch production, as THR is reporting that the upcoming horror-thriller movie finally in the works from Amblin Partners has added a slew of actors to its cast. Most notably, Javier Botet, known for portraying many of the scariest creatures from our nightmares on film, has been cast in the role of Dracula. André Øvredal (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) will direct the film about the ship responsible for transporting the vampire from Transylvania to London in Bram Stoker’s original novel.

The 6’7″ Botet, who has starred in such franchises as IT and The Conjuring, as well as Guillermo del Toro‘s Gothic horror masterpiece Crimson Peak, has carved out a significant niche in the genre. He joins the previously-cast Corey Hawkins. In addition to Botet, David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad), Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), and Aisling Franciosi (The Nightingale) have also been cast. Cunningham will play the Demeter’s captain, with Dastmalchian playing the ship’s first mate and Franciosi as a stowaway on the ill-fated voyage.
