F.W. Murnau’s 1922 classic horror film Nosferatu is getting a remake over at Studio 8 via The Witch writer/director Robert Eggers. In an interview with Indiewire Filmmaker Toolkit, the director swoons:
“‘Nosferatu’ has a very close, magical connection for me. Though if I were to make the movie 17-year-old Rob was going to make of ‘Nosferatu’ it would have been something between like ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ and ‘Sin City,’ whereas this is going to be the same approach as ‘The Witch,’ where 1830s Biedermeier Baltic Germany needs to be articulated in a way that seems real.”
