Emmy winner Emma Corrin is set to star opposite Lily Rose-Depp in Robert Eggers' long-in-development reimagining of Nosferatu, based on the classic gothic tale of the same name.
Corrins will join previously announced cast members Bill Skarsgård, Nicholas Hoult and Willem Defoe.
Corrin gained recognition for their breakout role as Princess Diana in the fourth season of the acclaimed Netflix drama The Crown. They recently starred opposite Harry Styles in My Policeman and Jack O’Connell in Lady Chatterley’s Lover. They will next be see on the FX limited drama Retreat, where they will play an amateur detective named Darby Hart.
Although the horror remake aims to elevate the eerie tone of the 1922 silent horror classic, it will still stay true to the plot. Similar to the 1922 movie, Nosferatu will focus on the titular vampire who becomes obsessed with a young woman. The movie, which will be set in 19th-century Germany, will follow the vampire as he stalks and brings horror into the life of the woman he is obsessed with. Actor, Bill Skarsgård, known for his portrayal of Pennywise in the hit horror film, IT, was previously announced to be playing the titular vampire.
The upcoming film is a remake of F.W. Murnau's famous silent 1922 movie of the same name. The Nosferatu reimagining has been a long time coming for Eggers, who serves as writer and director. He also produces alongside Jeff Robinson, John Graham, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus. In 2019, reports circulated that Harry Styles and Anya Taylor-Joy had been cast as the film's stars but budget and scheduling conflicts delayed production, with Eggers moving along to Northman. Now with a new cast, the film is due to shoot throughout Europe next month.
