Robert Eggers' NOSFERATU Moving Forward With Bill Skarsgard & Lily-Rose Depp; Anya Taylor-Joy Drops Out

Great news for Robert Eggers fans here, as The Northman director is now moving forward with his remake of horror classic Nosferatu, with Bill Skarsgard & Lily-Rose Depp on board to play the lead roles.

There's been a lot of excitement surrounding Robert Eggers' planned remake of Nosferatu, but The Northman director recently revealed that the project had been sidelined, and may not happen at all. However, we now have a far more encouraging update.

According to Deadline, 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 was also said to have read for the role of Hutter.

F.W. Murnau directed the original 1922 classic, while Werner Herzog helmed a 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.
