Actress Lily-Rose Depp may soon give you goosebumps. She would negotiate a role in the remake of ‘Nosferatu’. Bill Skarsgard stars as the vampire following in Klaus Kinski’s footsteps.
Robert Eggers’ Nosferatu remake seems to be taking shape. US industry portal “Deadline” reports, citing insiders, that “It” star Bill Skarsgard will be playing the title character. Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, is said to be in talks to become his co-star and negotiations with the 23-year-old actress are said to be underway. Eggers directs the project and he also wrote the screenplay.
According to the report, the reinterpretation of “Nosferatu” is about the obsession between a young woman – played by Depp – living in 19th-century Germany and a vampire from Transylvania (Skarsgard), who haunts her and brings “indescribable horror” . Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau’s original “Nosferatu – Eine Symphonie des Grauens” was published in 1922. In 1979, Werner Herzog had already shot a “Nosferatu” homage with Klaus Kinski in the role of the vampire under the title “Nosferatu – Phantom of the Night” .
According to “Deadline”, Eggers has been planning his remake of the 1922 silent film for years. In 2019, according to US media reports, he was about to implement the project, Anya Taylor-Joy and Harry Styles have roles in it. The director is said to have discontinued the project and eventually devoted himself to his film “The Northman”, which hit theaters in April 2022.
Now also “Nosferatu” seems to be a reality. In a 2016 “Shudder” interview, the director said why the cult film holds such a special place in his heart: “It was an indie horror in its day, a little rough in places – and yet it’s one of the greatest and terrifying movies ever made.” The recently restored versions of the film are “really impressive, but I still prefer the plain black and white versions.” These displayed “an uncanny mystery and helped build the myth of Max Schreck as a real vampire”.
