Robert Eggers, days away from the opening of The Lighthouse, is setting his sights on his next feature project.

Eggers is sticking to historical times with The Northman, a Viking drama that is being set up at New Regency.

Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Skarsgård and his Lighthouse star Willem Dafoe are in various stages of talks to star in the saga.

Skarsgard is said to have approached Eggers with the initial idea for the story and will also be a producer.

Written by Eggers and Icelandic poet and novelist Sjón, Northman is described as a grounded story set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century that centers on a Nordic prince who seeks revenge for the death of his father.

If talks progress and deals make, Skarsgard would play the prince and Kidman his mother.

“ Sources say that Icelandic singer Björk is also being eyed for a supporting role, though it’s unclear whether she has been approached with a formal offer at this time. If she did join the cast, it would be her first significant acting role since 2000’s Dancer in the Dark, but to be clear, she is not in talks like the other five actors.”

I really like the sound of this.

I thought The Witch was promising and The Lighthouse looks amazing thus far. Can't wait to see what he does with this.
