According to the deadline

Eggers’ latest stance on Nosferatu has been in the works for some time now. According to Deadline, it was initially developed with Taylor-Joy and Harry Styles, but scheduling conflicts prompted the actress to bow out. Bill Skarsgard, best known for roles such as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the 2017 reboot of Stephen King’s It, was cast to play the vampire alongside Lily-Rose Depp as the film’s heroine.

Twitter came under fire on Friday as fans learned that the actor would not star in Nosferatu. User Carlos Alonzo Morales posted a video clip from Better Call Saul in which Bob Odenkirk says, “In times like these, we ask ourselves the deepest question: Is there a God? How can he do this? With me this Who did it? Who can sue me?”

“When I remember Nosferatu could have starred Anya Taylor Joy and Robert Pattinson,” wrote user Danielle. Pattinson, who starred as a vampire in the Twilight films, was once rumored to be in talks to play the lead role of Nosferatu.
