PROJECT DETAILS
  • Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) is in negotiations to star in the film. She last worked with writer/director Robert Eggers on The Witch.
  • Announced in the Summer of 2015, it looks like the project is still in development and Robert Eggers still plans to write and direct. He had a recent podcast interview where he confirms this, saying: "[It’s shocking] to me. It feels ugly and blasphemous and egomaniacal and disgusting for a filmmaker in my place to do ‘Nosferatu’ next. I was really planning on waiting a while, but that’s how fate shook out." He goes on to say how he has a close connection with the original movie, detailing how he "lost his mind" after seeing a picture of Count Orlok when he was in elementary, then when he was 17 he went on to do a play for Nosferatu in his senior year. He was quoted saying: "Nosferatu’ has a very close, magical connection for me. Though if I were to make the movie 17-year-old Rob was going to make of ‘Nosferatu’ it would have been something between like ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and ‘Sin City,’ whereas this is going to be the same approach as ‘The Witch,’ where 1830s Biedermeier Baltic Germany needs to be articulated in a way that seems real." Adding.. “I can’t also do Max Schreck again either, so that’s fun, so it’s going back to the origins of the folk vampire." (11/12/16)
  • Written/directed by Robert Eggers (The Witch).
  • A remake was made in 1979 from director Werner Herzog.
  • The original film was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula, where the names and various details were changed because the studio couldn't obtain the rights to the novel.
  • This is a remake of the classic 1922 silent film Nosferatu.
