He may have suddenly disappeared from the world of The Walking Dead and he only had a few bad hours, in his own 24 re-boot, but Corey Hawkins is still a busy man as he has signed up for a whole new Dracula story, based on a chapter in Bram Stoker’ s infamous novel.

Hawkins will star in André Øvredal’s The Last Voyage of the Demeter and here is the intriguing synopsis

The film is based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 novel Dracula. The chapter tells the story of the Russian schooner, Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo – twenty four unmarked wooden crates – from Carpathia to London. The film will detail the strange events that befell the doomed crew as they attempt to survive the ocean voyage, stalked each night by a terrifying presence onboard the ship. When it finally arrived near Whitby Harbour, it was a derelict. There was no trace of the crew.

Sounds really good. No release date as of yet.
