What with The Witch receiving much acclaim, many were interested to see what its writer/diretor Robert Eggers will do next. Well it seems that we now have our answer, as several websites have reported that the film’s editor Louise Ford told ‘Mandy News’ that he’s re-teaming with production company A24 for The Lighthouse, a fantasy horror film that Eggers wrote and will direct.

“It’s set in 1890, and we’re shooting on 35mm black and white stock, virtually unheard of nowadays. Most black and white movies are shot in colour, and then converted to black and white in post. The dailies look beautiful; it’s very exciting.”

We don’t know much about the plot yet except that it concerns an aging lighthouse keeper named Old, and is set in Nova Scotia in the early 20th century.

Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson will star.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
