Surely not? Not the most classic of all horror classics? Yup. Robert Eggers is set to write and direct a remake for F. W. Murneau’s 1922 silent horror film, Nosferatu. Known mainly for his production design work, Eggers, after his feature length film debut this year with The Witch (for which he won the directing prize at Sundance this year), is taking on the classic with former Warner Bros. executive Jeff Robinov at Studio 8. They are to develop a new ‘visceral’ adaptation of the original. There has been no more talk of a release date, but it is most likely to be after Eggers’ current project with Studio 8 to make medieval action flick The Knight.
