Director Robert Eggers (The Lighthouse, The Witch) is helming The Northman, which he is co-writing with Oscar nominee Sjón, from a screenplay written by the two of them (Dancer in the Dark, Lamb). Lars Knudson and Mark Huffam are in charge of the production.
Eggers first came to public attention in 2015 with his feature directorial debut, The Witch, a period horror film that was both critically and commercially successful at the time of its release. He followed this up with the psychological thriller The Lighthouse, which starred Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe in the lead roles.
