‘Nosferatu’ Remake in the Works With ‘The Witch’ Director

Studio 8 has brought on Robert Eggers to write and direct a remake of the horror classic “Nosferatu.”

The film is currently untitled and will be based on F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film, which followed the vampire Count Orlok of Transylvania, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamored of the real-estate agent’s wife. It was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” and Werner Herzog directed a 1979 remake.

Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen’s Parts and Labor will produce.

Eggers has already signed a deal with Studio 8 and is attached to direct “The Knight” for the studio.

The helmer drew plenty of interest from Hollywood after “The Witch” drew rave reviews following its bow at Sundance. Studio 8’s upcoming slate includes films from Gary Ross and Francis Lawrence.

Eggers, Van Hoy and Knudsen are repped by WME.
