Viggo Mortensen has been linked to the Dracula film Last Voyage of the Demeter.
The Dangerous Method actor is wanted to portray the lead role of Henry Clemens in the project, reports Bloody Disgusting.
Based on a portion of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula, Last Voyage of the Demeter centres on the crew of the Demeter ship transporting Dracula's coffin to Transylvania.
Neil Marshall is helming the movie with Sir Ben Kingsley still expected to play the ship's captain, while Prometheus star Noomi Rapace may portray a character called Anna Billington.
Mortensen is set to appear in the follow-up to 2007's Eastern Promises, also starring Vincent Cassel.
