Brilliant filmmaker Robert Eggers, the director behind The Witch, The Lighthouse, and The Northman, is now making a “reimagining” of the classic 1922 film Nosferatu.


The latest news about the remake comes from Deadline, reporting that Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kraven the Hunter) has joined the cast. Johnson joins previously announced cast members Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse), Bill Skarsgard (The Norseman), Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road), Emma Corrin (Lady Chatterley’s Lover), Lily-Rose Depp (The King), Simon McBurney (The Conjuring 2), and Ralph Ineson (The Witch). Skarsgard is reportedly starring as Count Orlok/Nosferatu.


“In the new reimagining, the pic is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman (Depp) in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire (Skarsgard) who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him.”


The original black-and-white film, an official adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, was directed by F.W. Murnau and centers on the vampire Count Orlok, who seeks to buy a house in Germany and becomes obsessed with the real-estate agent’s wife.
