Anya Taylor-Joy is reuniting with Robert Eggers for a “Nosferatu” remake
Anya Taylor-Joy and Robert Eggers have joined forces for a remake of the vampire classic, Nosferatu, which will follow on the heels of the pair’s collaboration on the upcoming Viking film The Northman.
Dazed reports that in 2015, Anya Taylor-Joy made her feature-length debut in Robert Eggers’ supernatural horror film The Witch, playing the daughter of a Puritan family that encounters evil forces lurking in the woods, in her breakout acting role.
Currently working on the filmmaker’s viking epic The Northman, she is set to reunite with him once again.
Loosely based on Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Nosferatu was first produced as a silent film by the German director F. W. Murnau in 1922. Subsequent versions have included Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), while an Eggers-led remake was first hinted at in 2015, before plans fell into uncertainty and the project all but vanished in a cloud of bats.
