I’ve gotta say, I felt lukewarm about 2015’s puritan scream machine The Witch. However I’m by no means something however smitten by Wilhem Dafoe. Whether or not he’s patching up his purple motel in Florida Venture, or dying in Maine with John Lurie, I’ll take him any means he needs to be, anythe place, he needs to be, together with (positive) a suspense-filled lighthouse.
I used to be due to this fact excited to be taught from The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday that Dafoe is in talks to star in The Witch director Robert Eggers’ second function movie The Lighthouse, a thriller about an outdated man (actually named Previous, to be performed by Dafoe) who maintains a lighthouse. Dafoe is undoubtedly excited by this prospect a nicely, seeing as he bemoaned his lack of main man roles to THR earlier this month, saying “I’m like the boy next door, if you live next door to a mausoleum.” Possibly Eggers’ subsequent movie will be The Mausoleum!
Extra about The Lighthouse: It’s reportedly set on the flip of the 20th century in Nova Scotia (good place for a lighthouse); Eggers is each writing and directing the movie for New Regency and A24.Related youtube video: (not from post)
