The 100th anniversary of Nosferatu is right around the corner, and director Dave Eggers has hinted that he might try to reboot the movie for the big screen. However, Eggers isn’t 100% sure whether it will happen. He wants to cast the actor who played the role of Spider-Man: No Way Home in the remake.
Anya Taylor-Joy has joined the cast of the Nosferatu remake, which is a remake of the classic Dracula movie. The actress made a splash in 2015 when she starred in the supernatural horror film The Witch. Since then, she has worked with director Robert Eggers on several projects, including the upcoming Viking revenge drama The Northman.
Robert Eggers has also revealed that he hopes to get Willem Dafoe to star in the Nosferatu remake. Dafoe has already worked with Eggers on The Lighthouse and is now collaborating with the director for the upcoming Nosferatu remake.
The remake was originally planned to begin production in Prague a few weeks ago. Harry Styles and Anya Taylor-Joy were supposed to star in it, but they backed out due to scheduling conflicts. The director hopes to get back together with Taylor-Joy before the remake begins shooting.
The Northman will be the latest film by Eggers. This unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula follows a vampire Count Orlok’s attempts to buy a house in Germany. It will also star Alexander Skarsgard as a Viking prince. Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, and Ethan Hawke also star.
Taylor-Joy’s career is booming, and she’s working on a number of projects. Her upcoming projects include the Edgar Wright thriller “Last Night in Soho,” and the upcoming thriller “Laughter in the Dark” with Scott Frank.
It’s not too early to be excited about a new remake of the classic horror movie. The director of “The Lighthouse” has recently announced that he wants to re-team with Dafoe. The actor has previously worked with Eggers on several projects, including the 2019 adaptation of “The Northman.” No word yet on whether the remake will happen, but Dafoe is reportedly interested.
The Nosferatu remake has been in limbo for several years. Harry Styles, who had been attached to the lead role, recently dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Eggers’ film has yet to be confirmed, but he has said that Dafoe must be cast in the remake. Dafoe has previously worked with Eggers and has appeared in his film The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson.
Originally, Eggers had planned to make Nosferatu after he completed The Witch. However, his plans changed to focus on The Lighthouse and The Northman, which allowed him to reteam with Willem Dafoe in the Nosferatu remake. Dafoe had previously played the role of Max Schreck in the 2000 biopic Shadow of the Vampire.
The film is a loose adaptation of the classic Dracula story. In the film, a vampire named Count Orlock terrorizes a real estate agent and his wife. It is regarded as one of the quintessential works of German Expressionism and helped create the horror genre as we know it today.
The director Robert Eggers has been working on a new version of the vampire film Nosferatu for several years now. The project has previously been linked to Harry Styles, and Eggers has worked with both of them on a number of other projects. However, the project has fallen apart twice, before pre-production even began. Eggers has wondered if this remake of Nosferatu is even meant to happen at this point, and has even speculated that the ghost of the original director of the film might be telling him something.
Eggers has said that he hopes to cast Willem Dafoe in the remake, but the casting has not yet been confirmed. Dafoe has worked with Eggers several times before, including in the 2014 thriller The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson.
Originally, Eggers planned to remake Nosferatu after he completed The Witch but instead chose to make The Lighthouse and The Northman. This gave Eggers the opportunity to reunite with Dafoe, who starred in Lighthouse as Max Schreck. Dafoe also had the role of Max Schreck in the original Shadow of the Vampire. However, the director did not plan to cast Dafoe as the vampire and had originally planned to cast Nicolas Cage instead.
While Willem Dafoe may not be playing the evil vampire Count Orlok in the remake, he has proven that he can play the role of the vampire in another film. The actor had previously starred as the fictionalized version of Max Schreck in the horror satire “Shadow of the Vampire.” He also said that the connection between his role in the remake and his role in Nosferatu was not intentional.
