Anya Taylor-Joy Looking to Sign on for Robert Eggers ‘Nosferatu’ Remake

by Nick Banks

Variety is reporting that star of The Witch and Split, Anya Taylor-Joy, will “re-team with director Robert Eggers on his new take on a cinematic classic”, the quintessential vampire film, Nosferatu

Eggers directed the young star in his horrifying debut The Witch, and “… wanted to re-team with Taylor-Joy on the film early in the process, but after she became a bona fide movie star in M. Night Shyamalan’s hit Split, the young actress’ schedule has filled up. She is currently filming Josh Boone’s X-Men film New Mutants and is also signed on for the Split and Unbreakable sequel Glass, which also stars James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, and Samuel L. Jackson.”

Eggers will be both writing and directing his version of Nosferatu.  As most horror fans know, “The 1922 silent movie followed the vampire Count Orlok of Transylvania, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamored of the real-estate agent’s wife. It was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Werner Herzog directed a 1979 remake.”
