Robert Eggers, Alexander Skarsgard Team for Viking Saga 'The Northman'
Are tickets on sale yet?
Cool news but I guess Nosferatu won’t be seeing the light of day
You guys are fast!
I am all in on this, just hope it isn't black and white.
Also it sucks he's not going forward with the Nosferatu remake.
“ Sources say that Icelandic singer Björk is also being eyed for a supporting role, though it’s unclear whether she has been approached with a formal offer at this time. If she did join the cast, it would be her first significant acting role since 2000’s Dancer in the Dark, but to be clear, she is not in talks like the other five actors.”

Now this sounds decent
Maybe Nosferatu will be next up after this?
I read an interview that Pattinson rejected Nosferatu because the Vampire thing, dumb decision. So blame him.
The lighthouse came to light because him rejected Eggers' first offers
And now he's attached to superheroes, He will miss doing other projects the next years. I would be
Yep, this settles it. Robert Eggers is becoming one of my go-to directors for whatever he makes.
Happy to see him re-teaming with Anya.
Any idea of a release date? Guessing 2021.
Eggers is really the filmmaker I've been waiting for. Someone who's steeped in folklore and mythology. This ****'s my jam.
Hopefully he can have a crack of ancient Greece one day...
It's too soon for a release date. But for comparison...
The Witch seems to have begun hiring crew in 2013. It premiered at Sundance in January 2015. And it was released in theater in February 2016.
Lighthouse began casting in February 2018 and its being released this month.
This film is still in the talks stage so it could be 2021 or 2022 or even 2023. Really depends on a lot of factors.
Great, thank you .
The Lighthouse’s Robert Eggers: “Nothing good happens when two men are trapped in a giant phallus”
You're next directing The Northman, a Viking revenge saga set at the turn of the 10th century, with Dafoe as well as Alexander and Bill Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, and Anya Taylor-Joy from The Witch. What can you tell me about it?
Folk tales, fairy tales, religion, the occult—these are the things I’m most passionate about, even more than cinema. And I’m very passionate about cinema. So it should be no surprise to anyone that, for the Viking movie, I’m trying to explore that stuff in the Viking world, to try to get inside the mind of old Norse people, portray what that was. I don't want them to be, like, undercut-mohawk, tattooed, science-fiction rock stars. I want them to be old Norse people.
You moved up from a relative unknown in Anya Taylor-Joy leading The Witch to two widely respected stars, Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, in The Lighthouse. The Northman already has a much bigger, more star-studded cast than anything you've worked on.
And there are still two more big roles that need to be cast! It takes a lot longer for actors' deals to be finished when they're famous. But look, you have to work with people you get along with. If you are establishing a relationship where you as the director have to be kissing your star's feet, it's not gonna work.
and the people cast in The Northman, whom I haven't met yet but from speaking on the phone, I can tell. It's not a movie-star thing. These are creative, smart, passionate craftspeople who want to collaborate and tell a story.
Robert Eggers Talks 'The Lighthouse,' 'The Northman,' and... 'Mary Poppins'?
Saw the The Lighthouse, and now this is firmly cemented as one of my most anticipated movies of whatever year it comes out. I am firmly on the Eggers Train.
Best case scenario, late 2020.
If the studio thinks it has awards potential, held until summer/fall 2021.
It's probably a 2021 release. From what he said on The Ringer podcast, it sounds like a bigger production than his previous two films.
Would be fun to see Stellan in there. A Skarsgard family Christmas!
