Nosferatu remake will reteam The Witch star and director


On Tuesday it was confirmed that Anya Taylor-Joy, star of The Witch (which I will henceforth refer to by it’s much cooler stylized title) and M. Night Shyamalan’s Split was in talks to reunite with director Robert Eggers for the long reported but never started Nosferatu remake. There hasn’t been any confirmation of parts or a casting yet but it is expected that Taylor-Joy will play the victim of the titular vampire. For those of us who loved the VVitch and want to see more in that vein of horror, this news will come as a welcome relief.

Nosferatu will be a remake of the 1922 movie of the same name based on the classic Bram Stoker novel Dracula. No release window has been set yet and as of now the only other star rumored to be attached is genre veteran Doug Jones. Early reports of the filming technique cite that the movie will use CGI imposed colorized images of the original movie sets which sounds a little too close to the Star Wars prequels to me but I trust that Eggers knows what he is doing.
