Pattinson, Dafoe To Open Eggers’ “Lighthouse”

Robert Pattinson is set to join Willem Dafoe in the fantasy horror film “The Lighthouse” from writer-director Robert Eggers.

A24, who worked with all three talents on “Good Time,” “The Florida Project” and “The Witch” respectively, is set to distribute the film which begins filming in the Spring.

The story is set in the world of old sea-faring myths, specifically in Nova Scotia in the early 20th century and centering on an ageing lighthouse keeper (Dafoe).

Rodrigo Teixeira, Lourenco Sant’ Anna, Jay Van Hoy and Youree Henley will produce while New Regency will co-finance.
