Although his most up-to-date movie, The Northman, did not precisely handle to raid a lot cash from the field workplace, Robert Eggers is pushing forward along with his tackle Nosferatu. Now we all know that Invoice Skarsgård and Lily-Rose Depp will star within the vampire story.
That is one which Eggers has lengthy wished to deliver to screens, hatching a deal to make it since earlier than The Witch was in UK cinemas. He got here near placing all of the items along with common collaborator Anya Taylor-Pleasure in 2017, and Skarsgård was connected shortly after. Although again then, the director had his eye on Harry Types to co-star alongside them.
No signal of Types this time (but), however Depp and Skarsgård are totally on board for Eggers’ gothic story of obsession between a haunted younger girl (Depp) in nineteenth century Germany and the traditional Transylvanian vampire (Skarsgård) who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him.
Nosferatu sees Eggers firmly again in creepy territory (although there have been loads of scary/grotesque components to The Northman), whereas Skarsgård has expertise taking part in horrific creatures due to the It motion pictures.
The movie additionally reunites the director with Focus Options, although we’re hoping he’ll have a smoother time of it than he did with The Northman, each in manufacturing and upon launch.
