Actress Lily-Rose Depp could soon give you goosebumps. She is said to be negotiating a part in the "Nosferatu" remake. Bill Skarsgard is set to play the lead role as the vampire in Klaus Kinski's footsteps.
Robert Eggers' Nosferatu remake seems to be taking shape. The US industry portal "Deadline" reports, citing insiders, that "It" star Bill Skarsgard is to play the title character. Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, is said to be in talks to be his co-star and negotiations with the 23-year-old actress are said to be ongoing. Eggers is directing the project, and he also wrote the screenplay.
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 were said to have roles in it. The director is said to have stopped the project and finally devoted himself to his film "The Northman", which was released in cinemas in April 2022.
Now "Nosferatu" seems to be becoming a reality. In 2016, the director said in a "Shudder" interview why the cult film has such a special place in his heart: "It was an indie horror in its time, a bit rough in places - and yet it's one of the biggest and haunting films ever made." The newly restored versions of the film are "really impressive, but I still prefer the simple black and white versions." These displayed "an eerie mystery and helped build the myth of Max Schreck as a real vampire".
