Time to sharpen those stakes.

The remake of the 1922 silent horror classic Nosferatu has started shooting in Prague with several new cast members, according to a report on Deadline.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kraven the Hunter), Simon McBurney (The Pale Blue Eye) and Ralph Ineson (The Witch) have joined lead Bill Skarsgard, Nicholas Hoult, Lily-Rose Depp, Willem Dafoe and Emma Corrin in the impressive cast.

The Focus Features entry is written and directed by Robert Eggers, who also produces alongside John Graham, Jeff Robinov, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus.

This reboot 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 is stalking her–bringing untold horror with him.”

The original Nosferatu–an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula–was directed by F.W. Murnau from a screenplay by Henrik Galeen. In the film, Count Orlok (Max Schreck) is a vampire “who preys on the wife of his real estate agent and brings a plague to their town,” according to the synopsis.
