Anya Taylor-Joy to star in the Witch director’s Nosferatu remake

Anya Taylor-Joy reunites with Robert Eggers, director of The Witch, for his remake of Nosferatu, under construction for years.

There is a name on everyone’s lips right now on planet Hollywood. Anya Taylor-Joy is one of the rising stars of the Dream Factory and she continues to aim for the heavens. After being revealed to the world by The Witch by Robert Eggers, Taylor-Joy did not stop chaining the projects before making a definitive place in the hearts of the public with the Netflix miniseries The Lady’s Game, which earned him a Golden Globes. And if his agenda is already full, the actress is back on camera by Robert Eggers for his remake of Nosferatu le vampire directed by FW Murnau.

Nosferatu, version 1922

A long-term project, which has been dragging on since 2015. This new version of the film Nosferatu, released in 1922, was announced on the occasion of the Sundance Film Festival during the first broadcast of The Witch. The film has been in the works for six years, during which the filmmaker took a few breaks in order to concentrate on other projects.

Indeed, along the way, Eggers offered us The Lighthouse with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. What’s more, The Northman, his reunion with Taylor-Joy, is in postproduction and will not be long in coming. If the remake of Nosferatu, a classic loosely inspired by Dracula by Bram Stoker and already rearranged by Werner Herzog, has sometimes been put aside a bit, it is obviously on the right track this time.

Anya Taylor-Joy’s role in her third film with Eggers is still unknown, but we have want to believe that she will play the character of Ellen Hunter, the wife of the real estate agent who deals with the ugly vampire. Not a completely crazy guess, considering that Ellen Hunter is the only major female character in the footage.

If nothing is yet certain about his role in the reboot of the silent classic, he is that one among all those who await it in the future. We will find the actress of Split in Last Night in Soho d’Edgar Wright, Canterbury Glass by David O. Russell, The Menu by Mark Mylod but also in the spin-off of Mad Max : Fury Road based on the character of Furiosa.

As for the rest of the cast, no information has yet been released. To alleviate your impatience, you can find our review of The Lighthouse just here. Otherwise, the trailer for Last Night in Soho is over there.
