Renfield, starring Nicolas Cage and Nicholas Hoult, isn’t Universal’s only Dracula film set to be released in 2023. They’ll also be releasing the entirely unrelated Dracula project The Last Voyage of the Demeter next year — and while Demeter was initially intended to hit theaters on January 27, 2023, three months before Renfield, Universal has chosen to move it to the summer.
Based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 novel Dracula, the story is set aboard 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 on board the ship. When it finally arrived near Whitby Harbour, it was a derelict. There was no trace of the crew.
The Hollywood Reporter provides some cast and character information: “Corey Hawkins stars as a doctor onboard the Demeter, Aisling Franciosi as an innocent stowaway, Liam Cunningham as the ship’s captain, and David Dastmalchian as the Demeter’s first mate.” Jon Jon Briones, Stefan Kapicic, Nikolai Nikolaeff, and Javier Botet are among the listed ensemble cast members.
The release date for The Last Voyage of the Demeter has been pushed back to August 11, 2023.
