If it’s one director that has done a nice job of shaking up the indie and the horror worlds it gotta be Robet Eggers as of late. The dude, is dropping black and white films starring big names and doing it somewhat quietly, for Crom’s sake. Eggers is no doubt a visionary and we can’t wait for anything he does, and currently, that next thing we are looking forward to is The Northman over at Focus Features.
The Northman will focus on a viking prince that goes batshit, and takes swift revenge after anyone who had anything to do with the death of his father. The film stars Björk, Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgard, Ethan Hawke, Anya Taylor Joy and Willem Dafoe.
Eggers co-writes the screen play with poet, Sjón.
A revenge story from Eggers with this much of a particular caliber after actor is very exciting. I’m also wondering if he will ever decide to go back and focus on black and white.
Whatever he decides, I feel like are in really good hands. The film is set to be released in theaters April 8, 2022.
