Filming underway on Nosferatu remake, Doug Jones to star as Count Orlok

Variety is reporting that production is underway on a new remake of the F.W. Murnau silent horror classic Nosferatu, which stars Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) as the infamous Count Orlok.

The Kickstarter-funded project is being directed by David Lee Fisher (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) and is described as a “remix” of the 1922 movie, which will feature a blend of live-action footage combined with colorized digital backgrounds recreated from the original film.

Joining Jones in the cast of Nosferatu: The Vampire Lives are Emrhys Cooper (Mamma Mia), Joely Fisher (Ellen) and Sarah Carter (Falling Skies).

This is not the only remake of Nosferatu on the horizon, with Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8 tapping The Witch director Robert Eggers to helm a version, although there’s no word yet as to when that project might move forward.
