Robert Eggers is finally able to tackle his dream project with his upcoming twist on the classic Nosferatu. The project has been building up quite a cast that includes Emma Corrin, Willem Dafoe, Nicholas Hoult, Lily-Rose Depp, and Bill Skarsgard. Now, it seems the film has added a few more members to round out the ensemble piece.
Ralph Ineson and Simon McBurney are set to join the production with the additional big get-in Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Eggers is once again writing the film he’s set to direct, which is already busy filming in Prague. The film will be distributed through Focus domestically while Universal Pictures International will take care of the global rollout of the film.
There’s no word on who exactly Taylor-Johnson will be playing, but the story will explore 19th-century Germany, where a Transylvanian vampire stalks a young woman. Skarsgard is set to play Nosferatu with Depp taking over the role of the young woman, who was previously going to be played by Anya Talyor-Joy. Harry Styles was also originally part of the film before it was put on hiatus by Studio 8.
