Robert Eggers is the creator of the anticipated film, The Northman. Starring Alexander Skarsgård as the hulking viking. 

 

The Synopsis 

Young Prince Amleth (Alexander Skarsgård, “The Legend of Tarzan”) is on the cusp of becoming a man when his father (Ehan Hawke, “Training Day”) is brutally  murdered by his uncle (Claes Bang, “The Square”), who kidnaps the boy’s mother (Nicole Kidman, “Moulin Rouge!”). Fleeing his island kingdom by  boat, the child vows revenge. Two decades later, Amleth is a Viking berserker raiding Slavic villages, where a seeress reminds him of his vow: avenge his father, save his  mother, kill his uncle. Traveling on a slave ship to Iceland, Amleth infiltrates his uncle’s farm with the help of Olga (Anya Taylor-Joy, “The Queen’s Gambit”), an enslaved Slavic woman — and sets out to  honor his vow.

Before making films, Robert Eggers started directing theater and designing in New York. Eggers moved on to the screen as a writer, director and production designer for several short films. In 2015 he made his feature debut as a writer and director with The Witch. The Lighthouse followed, winning several awards, including the BAFTA and Oscar nominations for Best Cinematography.
