She's teamed up with writer/director Robert Eggers for The Witch, one of 2016's most well-received movies, and now actress Anya Taylor-Joy is looking to potentially collaborate with Eggers once again, this time in a remake of one of the most highly regarded horror films of all time.
Variety reports that Taylor-Joy is "in negotiations" for a starring role in Eggers' remake of Nosferatu, F.W. Murnau's classic 1922 vampire film about a town haunted by the undead Count Orlok, aka Nosferatu, who lives in a castle in the mountains and has a crimson-stained diet.
It's not known who Taylor-Joy would play, but fans of the original Nosferatu could potentially picture her in the role of Ellen Hutter, a character who becomes the bloodsucking obsession of Nosferatu. Time will tell exactly who Taylor-Joy will play in Studio 8's remake, though, which will be produced by Chris Columbus.
Inspired by Bram Stoker's classic novel, Dracula, F.W. Murnau's Nosferatu was remade in 1979 by Werner Herzog with Nosferatu the Vampyre, an homage to Murnau's masterpiece.
