Witch Director To Helm “Nosferatu” Remake

Studio 8 has set up an untitled remake of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film “Nosferatu” with Robert Eggers set to write and direct the Dracula-inspired tale.

Eggers, who won the directing prize at Sundace for “The Witch,” will helm what’s being called a more “visceral adaptation” of the classic. Jeff Robinov, Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen are expected to produce.

Eggers is also closing a separate deal with Studio 8 to write and direct the medieval film “The Knight”.
