Jude Law may be setting sail with a vampire.  Bleeding Cool reports that the actor is in talks to play the lead role in David Slade’s The Last Voyage of the Demeter.  The story is a kind of spin-off from Dracula and focuses solely on the events of the vampire’s travel on the doomed cargo ship, The Demeter.  If Law signs on, he would join Ben Kingsley and Noomi Rapace (who starred in the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy).

Hit the jump for a synopsis of The Last Voyage of the Demeter and a refresher on Law’s other projects.

Law has a busy 2011 as he’ll be seen in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion (October 21st), Martin Scorsese’s Hugo Cabret (December 9th), and Sherlock Holmes 2 (December 16th).  He’s also signed on to do voice work in DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming 3D film Rise of the Guardians.

For those just tuning in, here’s a synopsis of The Last Voyage of the Demeter:

A Russian ship, the Demeter, having weighed anchor at Varna, runs aground on the shores of Whitby, England, during a fierce tempest. All of the crew are missing and presumed dead, and only one body is found, that of the captain tied to the ship’s helm. The captain’s log is recovered and tells of strange events that had taken place during the ship’s journey. These events led to the gradual disappearance of the entire crew apparently owing to a malevolent presence on board the ill-fated ship [Wikipedia].
