Nicholas Hoult is in negotiations to join the ensemble of Robet Eggers next movie, Nosferatu, which Focus Features is producing. Bill Skarsgard is attached to play the titular character, with Lily-Rose Depp also in talks to star.
The story is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman (Depp) in 19th century Germany and the ancient Transylvanian vampire (Skarsgard) who stalks her, bringing untold horror with him.
Eggers is directing and penning the script while Jeff Robinov, John Graham, Robert Eggers, Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus are producing.
The last time Robert Eggers' Nosferatu movie came this close was several years ago when Anya Taylor-Joy and Harry Styles were expected to star. Eggers hit pause on the project when Styles had to drop out and Taylor-Joy could no longer hit the film into her schedule.
Should Nicholas Hoult join the cast of Nosferatu, it won’t be the only vampire movie on his slate. The actor is set to star in Renfield, a horror-comedy which follows Count Dracula’s famous henchman as he finds a new lease on life in modern day New Orleans when he falls in love with a feisty but perennially aggressive traffic cop. Hoult stars as Renfield with Nicholas Cage as Count Dracula, and the film will hit theaters on April 14, 2023.
