Quickly making a name amongst genre fans for her turns in The Witch and Split, Anya Taylor-Joy is now in talks to star in the upcoming Nosferatu remake.
As per Variety, the actress is in negotiations to join the redo, which just so happens to have The Witch’s Robert Eggers on board to write and direct for Studio 8. At present, Taylor-Joy is working on Josh Boone’s X-Men spinoff picture, New Mutants, and she’s also signed up to return for the Split (and Unbreakable) sequel, Glass, but after that it looks like she may well end up tackling Nosferatu’s feared blood-sucker.
In terms of movies, Nosferatu famously began life back as a silent movie in 1922. Focussing on the vampiric Count Orlok of Transylvania, the loose adaptation of Bram Stoker’s famed Dracula saw the Count looking to buy a house in Germany before he quickly became obsessed with the estate agent’s other half. Whilst F.W. Murnau’s 1922 movie is revered as an all-time classic by many, so too is Werner Herzog’s mesmerising 1979 Nosferatu the Vampyre. As such, Eggers certainly has a lot to live up to. If The Witch is anything to go by, though, this is certainly a talented fella, and so here’s hoping he can do something special with this upcoming redo.
As ever, expect more on this as it continues to develop.
