Hoult to play Thomas Hutter

We are getting our first look at Nicholas Hoult’s role in the forthcoming Robert Eggers Nosferatu remake, scheduled for release in 2024. Hoult will play Thomas Hutter, a Jonathan Harker-esque character who unwittingly exposes his wife to the tenacious Count Orlok.

Who is Nicholas Hoult?

Nicholas Hoult will star as Thomas Hutter, a real estate agent brokering a deal with Count Orlok. Unfortunately for Hutter, Orlok takes a fancy to Hutters wife, Ellen Hutter, played by Lily-Rose Depp.

Hoult’s career has been trending upward for over a decade. Viewers may know him from his iconic turn as Peter in Hulu’s historical satire The Great, or other roles, such as Renfield, the most recent X-Men films where he plays Hank McKoy a.k.a. The Beast, Mad Max: Fury Road, in which he plays Nux, or a dozen other movies in the past decade. To say Hoult is prolific or in high demand would be an understatement. 

An Unofficial Adaptation 

The original Nosferatu (1922) was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Names were swapped, i.e. Count Dracula is now Count Orlok and Jonathan Harker is now Thomas Hutter, but the basic plot is very similar to the gothic novel by Stoker.

The remake of Nosferatu is a gothic tale of obsession between a haunted young woman and the terrifying vampire infatuated with her, causing untold horror in its wake. An ancient Transylvanian vampire stalks a haunted young woman in 19th-century Germany.

Nosferatu (1922) entered the public domain a few years ago, so the timing couldn’t be better. While writer/director Robert Eggers originally intended Nosferatu (2024) to be a follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut feature, The Witch (2015), it will instead be released next year.

Who is Robert Eggers? 

Robert Eggers burst onto the scene in 2015 with his feature debut, The Witch. A commercial success due to it’s incredibly low budget, it marked the first of many collaborations with Eggers regulars Anna-Taylor Joy and Willem Dafoe.

Eggers began his career as a designer and director of theatre productions in New York before transitioning to working in film. His latest offering, Nosferatu (2024) will star Bill Skarsgård as Count Orlok, a Dracula-esque vampire that becomes obsessed with Thomas Hutter’s wife, Ellen. Interesting Eggers collaborated with Alexander Skarsgård in 2022 The Northman. This leads one to wonder if he will aim to collaborate with their father Stellan Skarsgård in his next rumored project, a biography about Rasputin, thus completing his Skarsgård collection. 

Coming to Theatres in 2024

Nosferatu (2024) is scheduled for release next year.
