The two actors will be the protagonists of the reboot of Nosferatu, directed by the American director Robert Eggers. The latter will take care of the direction, the screenplay and also the production of this new version of the cinematic classic.

Will Bill Skarsgard and Lily-Rose Depp the protagonists of the highly anticipated reboot of Nosferatu, directed by US director Robert Eggers. The latter will take care of the direction, the screenplay and also the production of this new version of the cinematic classic. We are talking about the masterpiece directed first by Murnau in 1922 and then by Werner Herzog in 1979. The gothic and horror story of an ancient Transylvanian vampire’s obsession with a girl will then be told once again, all set in 19th century Germany. Bill Skarsgard and Lily-Rose Depp will play respectively the vampire and the girl above, the latter called Mina.
Replacing Anya Taylor-Joy, previously cast to play the young female lead, will be the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. Anya Taylor-Joy, star of the hit series The Queen of Chess, had to give up the role due to other film and television commitments. One of these commitments is, coincidentally, The Northman, the 2022 film also directed by Robert Eggers (director of Nosferatu) in which Anya Taylor-Joy stars opposite guess what? By Alexander Skarsgård, Bill Skarsgård’s older brother… But how small is the world of showbiz? And how big is the Skarsgård family?
Bill Skarsgard, the male lead
The crow, filming of the reboot concluded (which perhaps will be a TV series)
The new Nosferatu by Robert Eggers is the second reboot project of this classic, and will star Bill Skarsgard. Let’s talk about the actor who played the clown Pennywise in the last two films of It (It of 2017 and It – Chapter two of 2019), actor who will also be the interpreter of Eric Draven in the remake currently in the pipeline of The crow – The crow. The 1994 cult starring the late Brendon Lee, who died tragically on the set of that film therefore defined as “cursed”, is currently being rebooted. What should have been another film – directed by Rupert Sanders – is currently being presented as a possible television series. Shooting has just finished and – perhaps due to the abundant and excellent material shot – the production is now thinking of a project longer than a film. Whether it’s a film or a TV series, Rupert Sanders will always be directing, best known for directing Snow White and the huntsman And Ghost in the Shell.
As for Skasgard, we recall that he is a Swedish actor, born in 1990 and who has just landed on the big screen with the film Barbarian. Next year instead we will see it in Boy Kills World And John Wick: Chapter 4. Son of actor Stellan Skarsgård, Bill Skarsgard has four brothers, two of whom are active in cinema just like him: the famous Alexander Skarsgard (born in 1976) and Gustaf (born in 1980).
