Robert Eggers (The Witch, The Lighthouse, The Northman) is back next year with a remake of the horror classic Nosferatu, and a new image has surfaced this week.
Look closely (above) and you’ll also see a glimpse of Bill Skarsgård‘s Count Orlok…
Eggers tells Empire in their 2024 Preview, “It’s a scary film. It’s a horror movie. It’s a Gothic horror movie. And I do think that there hasn’t been an old-school Gothic movie that’s actually scary in a while. And I think that the majority of audiences will find this one to be the case.”
Willem Dafoe and Emma Corrin also star alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kraven the Hunter), Simon McBurney (The Conjuring 2) and Ralph Ineson (The Witch).
“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.
