'The Witch' Director Robert Eggers Remaking Horror Classic 'Nosferatu'

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell The writer and director behind last year's adored horror film The Witch has revealed that his next project is a remake of Nosferatu, though Robert Eggers isn't too fond of the idea. Or at least, he wasn't initially.

Speaking on Indiewire's Filmmaker Toolkit podcast, Eggers revealed that his remake of the 1922 classic was in the works, but said that "it feels ugly and blasphemous and egomaniacal and disgusting for a filmmaker in my place to do Nosferatu next. I was really planning on waiting a while, but that's not how fate shook out."

Eggers grew up on a love of classic horror, and at age 17 directed Nosferatu as his senior play. He hints at changing his approach to writing the film's lead character.
