Anya Taylor-Joy (Last Night In Soho) finished an epic Viking film, The Northman, for director Robert Eggers (The Lighthouse) after previously working with him on The Witch. There are some interesting updates on what projects she’ll be making in the next couple of years.
The Los Angeles Time has outlined her filming schedule revealing that The Menu is next with George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa shooting in 2022 (set to shoot at Fox Studios Australia in Sydney), and highlight that Robert Eggers’ remake of the classic silent vampire movie Nosferatu (Anya Taylor-Joy attached since 2017) will finally move forward.
Right now, Taylor-Joy, 25, seems to be everyone’s kind of girl. Her schedule is booked solid for the next 2½ years, starting soon with “The Menu,” a dark comedy set in the world of exotic culinary culture directed by Mark Mylod (“Succession”) and then moving next year to “Furiosa,” George Miller’s prequel to “Mad Max: Fury Road.” After that, she’ll reunite with “Queen’s Gambit” writer-director Scott Frank for the thriller “Laughter in the Dark” and Eggers again in a reworking of the vampire classic “Nosferatu,” the latest collaboration in a partnership that began with her first “real film,” the unnerving 2016 horror movie “The Witch.”
This would be the third time working with Eggers and bring her back to the horror genre.
NOSFERATU – In this highly influential silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok (Max Schreck) summons Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains. The eerie Orlok seeks to buy a house near Hutter and his wife, Ellen (Greta Schroeder). After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle, knowing that Ellen is in grave danger. Meanwhile Orlok’s servant, Knock (Alexander Granach), prepares for his master to arrive at his new home.
The Northman is set for release on April 8, 2022 and Furiosa is coming out June 22, 2023.
