Robert Egger’s, ‘The Northman’, finally gets a release date


The director of, ‘The Lighthouse’, Robert Eggers is working on his new movie called ‘The Northman’, which just got its 2022 release date. The Lighthouse was critically acclaimed when it debuted in 2019 and was commended for its brave storytelling and monochromatic and powerful cinematography. The film starred Robert Pattinson and Willen Dafoe, who both gave stunning performances as their characters struggling to battle loneliness at sea. The director was nominated for Best Director at the Independent Spirit Awards. While the film was not successful, commercially, The Lighthouse was quite liked by many film enthusiasts.

Now, Eggers is moving on to a new project called ‘The Northman’, which has now been given a 2022 release date. Focus Features, has just announced that ‘The Northman’ will hit theaters on Friday, April 8, 2022. The film is described as, “an epic revenge thriller that explores how far a prince will go to seek justice for his murdered father.” Eggers will also co-write the screenplay along with Icelandic poet and novelist, Sjón. The Producers are Lars Knudsen, Mark Huffam, and New Regency. The Northman will be a co-production between New Regency and Focus Features, who also produced ‘The Lighthouse’.

The movie has a huge star cast full of talented actors. Alexander Skarsgard, Nicole Kidman, Björk, Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Anya Taylor-Joy are all set to star in the film. Given Eggers’ record for getting out great performances of his actors, it would be interesting seeing him do the same with this new cast. With this amount of award-winning talent, ‘The Northman’ could become an awards top contender for next year.
