The Witch and The Lighthouse director Robert Eggers has assembled one hell of a cast for his next movie, a viking revenge film titled The Northman. Known cast includes Nicole Kidman, Alexander Skarsgård, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bill Skarsgård and Willem Dafoe, and it seems to have leaked this week that musician Björk is also part of the ensemble.
Björk, who starred in Lars von Trier’s Dancer in the Dark back in 2000, is reportedly playing the “Slav witch” in the film, with Kate Dickie (The Witch) also joining the cast.
The “viking revenge saga” is said to be set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century.
Eggers wrote the screenplay with Icelandic poet and novelist, Sjón.
