Anya Taylor-Joy to reteam with 'The Witch' director?

Anya Taylor-Joy to reteam with 'The Witch' director?

The news that Eggers is in negotiations with Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch's Thomasin), which Variety reported yesterday, is exciting to say the least.

Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus are on board to produce, alongside Jeff Robinov of Studio 8. The movie was in part based on Bram Stoker's Dracula, and there was a remake in 1979 directed by Werner Herzog with Nosferatu the Vamrpyre. The duo will be working on an updated version of the classic film "Nosferatu".

Eggers had previously wanted Anya Taylor-Joy to join the film, however, he had to wait until after she had finished M. Night Shyamalan's Split before she could join the cast.

The pay-per-view bout - possibly the biggest in combat-sports history - takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Aug. 26 fight starts at 9 p.m. and will be produced and distributed live by Showtime.

Nosferatu, released in 1922, is a nightmarish tale of a Transylvanian vampire, Count Orlok, who becomes obsessed with a young woman and begins to haunt her nightly.

The original vampire picture also was the subject of the dark comedy Shadow of the Vampire, which starred John Malkovich as F.W. Muranu and Willem Dafoe as Max Shreck; the movie's fictional premise was the amusing conceit that Shreck really was a vampire hired by Muranu to procure authenticity. She played a small, uncredited role in the 2014 film Vampire Academy. Not only did Eggers' debut breathe uncanny life into a remote past thanks to careful attention to period detail, his richly atmospheric film cleverly contested the misogyny inherent in witchcraft myths, resulting in an empowering fable for modern times.
