‘Nosferatu’ has nabbed ‘The Witch’ director, Robert Eggers. During a recent episode of IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit Podcast, the up-and-coming director and screenwriter revealed that his next movie will be a remake of the 1922 horror classic, ‘Nosferatu’. “It feels ugly and blasphemous and egomaniacal and disgusting for a filmmaker in my place to do ‘Nosferatu’ next.
It seems more and more evident that nothing is safe from a remake nowadays, with the news that 1922 horror classic ‘Nosferatu’ will be remade. Robert Eggers is alleged to be writing and directing the film. It’s certainly a huge challenge for the young director who, so far, has only directed one feature film.
The head of ‘Nosferatu’ director F.W. Murnau has been stolen from his grave in Germany, according to reports. In what sounds like a plot from a horror movie, German news outlets say that the director’s skull was taken from his family plot in a cemetary in Stahnsdorf, 12 miles outside Berlin. According to Spiegel Online, an amount of wax residue was found close to the grave, which is suggesting a possible occult connection.
