‘Nosferatu’ – Official Website Launches for Upcoming Robert Eggers Remake

Up next from Robert Eggers (The Witch, The Lighthouse, The Northman) is a remake of the horror classic Nosferatu, and Focus Features has just launched the film’s official website this week. There’s not much there at this time, but the launch of the website is proof positive that the long-in-the-works film from Eggers is FINALLY – really this time! – happening.

Nosferatu has been a passion project for Eggers for many years, the project first announced way back in 2016. Both Anya Taylor-Joy and Harry Styles had at one point been attached to the project, which had fallen apart on at least two occasions. In fact, it was just last year that Eggers was convinced the ghost of F.W. Murnau was preventing him from making the film!

He told Indiewire in 2022, “I’ve been trying so hard. And I just wonder if [F.W.] Murnau’s ghost is telling me, like, you should stop.” Murnau of course directed the original classic.

Willem Dafoe, Bill Skarsgard, Nicholas Hoult, Emma Corrin and Lily-Rose Depp will star, with Robert Eggers making Nosferatu as his next movie for Focus Features.

As we’ve recently learned, the cast also includes Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kraven the Hunter), Simon McBurney (The Conjuring 2) and Ralph Ineson (The Witch).

Bill Skarsgard will reportedly be playing Nosferatu/Count Orlok in the film.

“Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him.”

Eggers (The Witch, The Northman) is directing and he also wrote the script.

F.W. Murnau directed the original 1922 version of Nosferatu, while fellow German filmmaker Werner Herzog notably directed his own version of the classic tale back in 1979.

The 1922 silent movie followed the vampire Count Orlok, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamored with the real-estate agent’s wife. It was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” which almost led to all copies being destroyed.
