Since the wide release of The Witch in 2016, rising star Anya Taylor-Joy has continued to capture audiences with her talent and beauty. The American-born Argentinian actress has been taking on more lead roles, particularly in the horror-thriller genre, with films such as Split, Thoroughbreds and El Secreto de Marrowbone.
There have been recent talks of Anya Taylor-Joy’s attachment to The Witch director, Robert Eggers, remake of the German vampire silent film classic, Nosferatu. Originally released in Germany in 1922, Nosferatu was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. It wasn’t until seven years later in 1929 that Nosferatu was released to audiences in the United States.
Eggers is currently in production with his latest thriller, The Lighthouse, starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. Anya Taylor-Joy shared her enthusiasm in working with Eggers once again with EW. She states, “Right now, Robert is making the Lighthouse, which I could not be more proud of and more excited for, and I’m going to go and visit the set.” She continues, “He’s such a brilliant man — other than being a wonderful human being, he’s such a brilliant director. So, hopefully, we will get the chance to make that together, yeah.”
Future projects for Anya Taylor-Joy held in high anticipation include the sequel to 2016’s horror-thriller hit, Split, which will be titled Glass. The film will feature returning cast members from M. Night Shyamalan’s trilogy thriller including Anya Taylor-Joy, James McAvoy, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson. You can currently catch Joy’s latest release, Thouroughbreds, which was released on March 9th, 2018; the film currently holds an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
