Robert Pattinson Joins Willem Dafoe in The Lighthouse

The New Movie from The Witch Director

Robert Eggers gave us The Witch and his new movie,  The Lighthouse appears no less intriguing. Written with Max Eggers, Robert Eggers will be directing. Getting back together with a number of people and companies who worked with him on The Witch. Including A24,  RT, and Parts and Labour. Set in New England this story is a fantasy horror. And Willem Dafoe will be playing Old.

The Lighthouse to Star Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson

Whilst I always think Twilight and Harry Potter when Robert Pattinson is mentioned, he has starred in a number of movies since then. Including Maps to the Stars, Queen of the Desert with Nicole Kidman, Life, The Lost City of Z, and most recently Damsel.

Willem Dafoe has recently been seen in Murder on the Orient Express, What Happened to Monday, The Great Wall, and one of my fav trilogies (of which we’ve only had two so far) -John Wick.

On the movie

A24 who will be working with Eggers on the movie said:

“This new script blew us away – it creates a totally unique and ambitious universe and manages to somehow feel scary, suspenseful, wondrous, and beautiful all at the same time.’

With very little information so far it’s a keep your eyes peeled and your ears open kinda situation. But we do know that filming of The Lighthouse is set to begin this year in Nova Scotia. And that the film will be shot on 35mm Black and White stock.

Although, perhaps not to be confused with the 2016 film The Lighthouse based on real events. Set in 1801 in the Irish Sea. Starring  Mark Lewis JonesMichael Jibson, and Ian Virgo. About two lighthouse keepers stranded at seas during a freak storm.  And their descent into despair and desolation.
