Nosferatu Remake Lands Bill Skarsgard and Lily-Rose Depp
Like the vampires themselves, Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu remake is hard to kill. After being exposed, he lost his potential client back in march, the director has been trying to make his version a success for 5 years, but seems to have given up hope. Well, Bill Skarsgard and Lily-Rose Depp have now been cast and the movie is back on track, Limit line report.
Eggers co-directed the stage production of the film in high school. He originally chose Ana Taylor-Joy for the project, who also starred in her feature film debut The Witch. Joining Taylor-Joy is Harry Styles, who has built a larger Hollywood résumé since the end of the year, but both stars dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. Eggers eventually paused the movie and turned to his Viking picture The Northman, which hits theaters and streams in April.
Skarsgard is coming up with the hit horror movie Barbarian, which he’s also executive producing, and a very busy 2023 ahead. His upcoming projects include Netflix’s thriller Boy Kills World and John Wick: Chapter 4. He is also starring in the Rupert Sanders-directed reboot of The Crow. The actor has established himself as a contemporary horror icon since late this year, most notably playing Pennywise in Stephen King’s remake of It.
The 1922 classic has been remade a few times, most notably in 1979 by Werner Herzog, starring renowned Polish actors Klaus Kinski as Count Orlock and Bruno Ganz as Jonathan. Harker.
Eggers’ Nosferatu is now set at Focus Features, directed and handled by himself. Jeff Robinov, John Graham, Robert Eggers, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus are producing.
