Nosferatu is based – very loosely – on Friedrich Murnau’s masterpiece, Nosferatu the Vampireitself an adaptation of Dracula by Bram Stoker. A young womanwho lives in 19th century Germany, is tormented by an ancient vampire from Transylvania, Nosferatu, who stalks and follows her everywhere, bringing unspeakable horror with him. The main theme of Eggers’ vision therefore becomes obsession. To take on the role of the young protagonist is Lily-Rose DeppWhile Bill Skarsgard – already the face of another horror icon, the clown Pennywise in the two-part reboot of IT – interprets Nosferatu. At the moment unknown, however, the roles of Emma Corrin, Willem Dafoe and Nicholas Hoult – also expected in a horror comedy version of the myth of Dracula, Renfield with Nicolas Cage. The production did not reveal the characters who will interpret the three new entries of the cast. Nosferatu see director Robert Eggers (The Witch, The Lighthouse, The Northman) also engaged as a writer and producer, in collaboration with with Jeff Robinov, John Graham, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus. Eggers, for the latest effort, has therefore put together a cast formed by “his of him” loyal to him-Willem Dafoe-and by new faces of the genre, flanked by horror veterans such as Bill Skarsgard and Ralph Ineson. Filming of Nosferatu are currently in progress at Prague, while an exit window has not yet been defined. All that remains is to wait for new ones updates.
