For two films, Robert Eggers has terrified us with supernatural period pieces in the form of The Witch and The Lighthouse. But it looks like he will be stepping away from that for his next film. But that doesn’t mean he won’t have a stellar cast to work with.
According to new reports, he will be directing The Northman, a grounded revenge story, that will star Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, Nicole Kidman, Bill SkarsgÃ¥rd, and reunite him with his Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy and Lighthouse star Willem Dafoe. More on the report below.
The first official trailer has been released for Mute, the latest from Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft director Duncan Jones. Jones also co-wrote the screenplay along with Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes, Pompeii).
The movie is described as “a science-fiction Casablanca,” following a mute bartender in a not-so-distant future Berlin. It stars Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux, Seyneb Saleh, Gilbert Owuor, Robert Sheehan, Nikki Lamborn, Noel Clarke, Daniel Fathers, Florence Kasumba, and Sam Rockwell.

Long before Duncan Jones got the gig to direct the blockbuster adaptation of Warcraft, he was a small indie director with only a few features under his belt. In fact, Moon wasn’t even supposed to mark his debut as a director, that moment was reserved for his passion project, Mute.
Now that his obligations to Warcraft are behind him, the filmmaker can start focusing once again on bringing Mute to the big screen, and has announced that production on the film will commence next week. More on the story below.
