Willem Dafoe in Talks to Star in Thriller The Lighthouse.
Willem Dafoe + Robert Eggers =
Robert Pattinson has joined the cast.
A24, Eggers and Pattinson?
Oh, yes please.
THE LIGHTHOUSE Beacons Us From The Minds Behind THE WITCH
This more and more sounds like a movie made specifically for me. Cant ****ing wait.
Really sad to click and find out this isn't the name of a BioShock movie.
Production is wrapped. Now work your magic A24.
Very embarrassed to just now be finding out about this.
Robert Eggers? A fantasy/horror film about seafaring folklore? Black and white? Already one of my most anticipated films for 2019.
Pattinson says he almost punched director Robert Eggers after one scene that was apparently ''torture''.
Cannes: Directors’ Fortnight Unveils Lineup
“Robert Eggers’ anticipated “The Lighthouse” with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, Luca Guadagnino’s medium-length film “The Staggering Girl” and Japanese helmer Takashi Miike’s “First Love” are set to unspool at Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight under the new leadership of Paolo Moretti.
Described by Moretti as a “hypnotic two-hander” powered by Pattinson and Dafoe, “The Lighthouse” is a fantasy horror film set in a mysterious island in New England at the end of the 19th century. Eggers previously directed “The Witch.”
I thought Robert Eggers was working on Nosferatu?
But either way, i'm looking forward to this.
Sounds like it got tabled.
He’s doing Nosferatu after this. Anya Taylor-Joy was cast.
This is going to be so awesome.
A24 + Horror = cinematic gold
stoked! The VVitch was a promising debut even if I didn't love it.
I've linked to some production notes below if anyone's interested. It looks like the cast only has three people in it, and the third person is a bit spoiler-y if you're trying to go into this blind. Avoid page 30 in that case.

This will also be premiering at Cannes on Sunday (5/19) so we should get some reactions here in a few days.
Also, hyped as ****.
This is VERY exciting
Really excited for this! Love Dafoe and Pattinson, who has really grown as an actor!
Give it to me.
I'm ready. When does it release?
Doesn't have a date yet.
Knowing A24 they'll push it to February 2020.
