“The Witch” star Anya Taylor-Joy and director Robert Eggers are looking to re-team on a remake of F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent cinematic classic “Nosferatu” at Studio 8.
The story follows the vampire Count Orlok of Transylvania, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamoured with the real-estate agent’s wife.
The project was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” and has been remade before in 1979 by Werner Herzog. 2000’s “Shadow of the Vampire” starred John Malkovich and Willem Dafoe in a darkly comic fictional spin on the original film’s making.
Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen will produce.
