“Nosferatu” Remake Reteams Anya Taylor-Joy With ‘The Witch’ Director

By Creative Media Times


The Witch‘s Robert Eggers is back to working with the film’s star Anya Taylor-Joy, this time for remake of the 1922 silent film Nosferatu. According to Variety, Eggers “is in negotiations” to the star in the remake.

Based on the mythology of Dracula and an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897), Nosferatu was once remade by Werner Herzog in 1979’s Nosferatu the Vampyre with starred Klaus Kinski as Count Dracula.

The Witch is considered a breakout role for Taylor-Joy, so there is good reason for this reunion. The Witch was very well received by critics after screening at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. The movie was given wide theatrical release by the studio early last year, eventually grossing $40 million.

Taylor-Joy recently appeared in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split, and will be filming a sequel along with McAvoy, Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson, combining plot and characters of both Split and Unbreakable.
