NOSFERATU: Robert Eggers' Remake Back On With Bill Skarsgard & Lily-Rose Depp To Play Leads

Director Robert Eggers recently indicated that his planned Nosferatu remake had stalled, but we now have a positive update, as the project is moving forward with Bill Skarsgard & Lily-Rose Depp on board.

There's been a lot of excitement surrounding Robert Eggers' plans to remake classic vampire movie, Nosferatu, but The Northman director recently revealed that the project had been sidelined, and did not seem confident that it would ever get off the ground. However, we now have a far more encouraging update.

According to Deadline (via FearHQ.com), the project is back on, with Bill Skarsgard (It, Barbarian) on board as Count Orlock and Lily-Rose Depp (Voyagers) set to play the woman of his sinister affections.

The Northman star Anya Taylor-Joy was originally in line for the female lead, but was forced to drop out due to a scheduling conflict. Harry Styles (Eternals, Don't Worry Darling) was also said to have read for the role of Hutter, but no longer seems to be attached.

F.W. Murnau directed the original 1922 film, which was a loose retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Werner Herzog helmed an ambitious, but rather bizarre 1979 remake. This "reimagining" is described as "a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman (Depp) in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire (Skarsgard) who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him."

Eggers will also pen the script for the Focus Features film, with Jeff Robinov, John Graham, Robert Eggers, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus producing. No production start date has been announced.

What do you guys make of this news? Are you disappointed that Taylor-Joy is no longer involved? Drop us a comment down below.
