Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse adds Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson is set to star in Robert Eggers’ upcoming fantasy horror film. The Lighthouse reunites Eggers with RT Features and A24, which were the companies responsible for bringing his 2015 sleeper hit The Witch to life. The new project is set in the world of old sea-faring myths and will go into production in the spring.

Robert Pattinson, coming off his highly touted performance for Good Time, joins in a lead role alongside Willem Dafoe, who recently received an Academy Award nomination for his work in The Florida Project. The script was written by Robert Eggers and Max Eggers. RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira and Lourenço Sant’ Anna developed the project with Eggers and will produce, alongside Parts & Labor’s Jay Van Hoy, and Youree Henley. A24 acquired worldwide rights and will distribute the film in the U.S. New Regency (The Revenant) has joined the project as a co-financier.

In a statement, Eggers expressed his excitement at working with RT and A24 once again: “I am extremely happy to be working with RT, A24, and Parts & Labor again. Along with New Regency, they are providing me and my collaborators with the support and freedom to make this film the way it needs to be made. It’s a privilege.”

A24 and RT Features echoed Eggers’ sentiments, with A24 stating: “We are beyond excited to be partnering again with Rob Eggers, a true visionary and one of the great filmmakers of his generation. This new script blew us away—it creates a totally unique and ambitious universe and manages to somehow feel scary, suspenseful, wondrous, and beautiful all at the same time. We can’t wait to work with Rob and his team, and our partners at RT Features, Parts & Labor, and New Regency, to help bring this story to life.”

RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira praised the addition of Pattinson and the work they did with Eggers on The Witch: “Pattinson is one of the most talented actors working today. We are excited to work with him and Eggers, a singular filmmaker whose unique vision we support. Our collaboration on The Witch was flawless and we look forward to re-uniting along with our partners at A24, Parts & Labor and New Regency.”

In addition to his critically acclaimed turn in Good Time, Pattinson starred in David and Nathan Zellner’s Damsel, which made its debut at the Sundance film festival last month. He recently wrapped production on High Life, Claire Denis’ anticipated sci-fi thriller.
