Anya Taylor-Joy Reteams With ‘Witch’ Director on ‘Nosferatu’ Remake
via Variety

After breaking out in his psychological thriller “The Witch,” Anya Taylor-Joy is looking to reteam with director Robert Eggers on his new take on a cinematic classic.

Sources tell Variety that the “Split” actress is in negotiations to star in Studio 8’s remake of “Nosferatu.”

Eggers is writing and directing the pic. The 1922 silent movie followed the vampire Count Orlok of Transylvania, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamored of the real-estate agent’s wife. It was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” and Werner Herzog directed a 1979 remake.

Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus will produce.

Eggers has already signed a deal with Studio 8 and is attached to direct “The Knight” for the studio. Jon Silk brought the “Nosferatu” project to Studio 8.

Eggers wanted to reteam with Taylor-Joy on the film early in the process, but after she became a bona fide movie star in M. Night Shyamalan’s hit “Split,” the young actress’ schedule has filled up. She is currently filming Josh Boone’s X-Men film “New Mutants” and is also signed on for the “Split” and “Unbreakable” sequel “Glass,” which also stars James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, and Samuel L. Jackson.

Taylor-Joy is repped by CAA and Troika.

Willem Dafoe Alights For Robert Eggers-Directed ‘The Lighthouse’
via Deadline

Willem Dafoe is finalizing his second project since being nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for The Florida Project. He’s in talks to star in The Lighthouse, a thriller that The Witch helmer Robert Eggers wrote and will direct for New Regency and A24. Dafoe will play the role of Old, an aging lighthouse keeper. Set at the start of the 20th century, the film is about lighthouse keepers in Nova Scotia.

The actor has joined Willem Dafoe in “The Witch” director Robert Eggers‘ new film “The Lighthouse.” Filming will get underway this spring, and it’s safe bet “The Lighthouse” will hit more than a few prominent festivals in 2019. As for what became of Eggers’ remake of “Nosferatu,” I presume that’s on the backburner for now.

The Lighthouse Summary: Based on the infamous Smalls Island Incident of 1801, The Lighthouse follows Thomas Howell and Thomas Griffith's disastrous posting to Smalls Island Lighthouse to keep the light 25 miles from land and surrounded by the deadly Irish sea. The men are stranded in a freak storm that rages for months, nothing short of an act of God. The film tells a tale of death, madness and isolation; a desolate trip into the heart of human darkness.

it's not chiming with critics but it's being warmly received based on i heard someone say a nice thing about it.

Not sure if this has been shared already or where it belongs, but it's my favourite episode of the A24 podcast yet:
