Over the previous few years, director Robert Eggers has been creating a remake of the basic 1922 vampire movie Nosferatu. Eggers is the filmmaker that beforehand introduced us movies comparable to The Witch, The Lighthouse, and the upcoming film The Northman. There’s a superb probability that Nosferatu will probably be his subsequent movie, and he needs Willem Dafoe to star in it.
Eggers already labored with Dafoe in The Lighthouse, and the actor was freakin’ wonderful in that film! He is also in The Northman and performs a jester of kinds. The 2 abilities clearly take pleasure in working with one another so it is sensible that Eggers would need to work with him once more.
In fact, once I consider Nosferatu and Willem Dafoe, my thoughts instantly goes to the improbable 2000 horror satire movie Shadow of the Vampire the place Dafoe performed a fictionalized model of Max Schrek, the actor who performed the vampire Rely Orlok within the authentic movie. For those who haven’t seen Shadow of the Vampire, it's essential do this! It’s an excellent movie that tells a fictionalized story concerning the making of the Nosferatu, and it additionally stars John Malkovich as director F.W. Murnau.
It might be fairly unbelievable to see Dafoe tackle the function of the vampire Rely Orlock within the film. Throughout an interview with /Movie, Eggers was requested about his Nosferatu movie and if he was trying to forged Dafoe in it. This was his response:
“‘Nosferatu’ is such an extremely vital movie and story for me, so it is at all times percolating. If Willem … if ‘Nosferatu’ is made, Willem higher rattling properly be in it as a result of I simply love working with him … however, you recognize, possibly he would play Ellen? Who is aware of.”
Anya Taylor-Pleasure has been connected to this movie undertaking for a very long time, and she or he is more than likely going to tackle the function of Ellen Hutter, the primary protagonist of the basic 1922 movie. It was lately revealed that Harry Types was forged within the film, however needed to drop out.
Nosferatu is an unauthorized movie adaptation of Bram Stoker‘s Dracula. The story follows a vampire named Rely Orlok from Transylvania who expresses curiosity in a brand new residence in Germany. That is the place he turns into infatuated together with his real-estate agent’s spouse.
Eggers has an extended historical past with Nosferatu, as he produced a remake of it for his senior-year undertaking. He additionally performed Rely Orlok in “a scene-for-scene re-creation of the silent movie, full with intertitles and sibling gargoyles.”
As a fan of Eggers work, I’m trying ahead to seeing his imaginative and prescient of Nosferatu.
