Nosferatu was supposed to be Eggers’ second feature film after The Witch, but the director ultimately decided to shelve it. After The Northman, the time had come, but now the Corona pandemic has stopped production.
Nosferatu stars Bill Skarsgård, Nicholas Hoult, Lily-Rose Depp, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Emma Corrin, Willem Dafoe, Simon McBurney and Ralph Ineson.
The premiere will take place in 2024, but the exact date has not been revealed.
