Emma Corrin has joined the cast of the literal century-in-the-making remake of Nosferatu, putting their belts on the classic horror remake.
The Crown actor Corrin has joined the cast of the upcoming Robert Eggers remake, which has been stuck in various stages of development hell for decades. Eggers is well-known for his work on thriller films such as The Witch and The Lighthouse.
Nosferatu was originally released in 1922 as an unauthorized German version of Bram Stroker's Dracula. One of the greatest trailblazers for horror and silent cinema in general, almost all copies of the film were destroyed due to the legalities surrounding its similarities to Stroker's.
Eggers has been working on his adaptation since 2015, initially starring Anya Taylor-Joy in a leading role. She left, and Lily-Rose Depp took her place on the cast. It's unclear who Corrin will play, although Depp is almost certain to play Ellen Hutter.
Corrin is openly non-binary, which opens up a few more roles they might play. Bill Skarsgrd is attached to play Count Orlock, but perhaps Corrin might reprise Thomas Hutter in a slight shift from the original film.
Eggers' Nosferatu remake has no release date, although it is believed to be the director's next film.
