HN Entertainment has been able to confirm that Robert Eggers’ Viking film The Northman would have seen production designer Craig Lathrop reunite with the director for a third project together. 

The Northman is a Viking revenge thriller taking place during the 10th century in Iceland. 

Craig was the production designer on both The Witch and The Lighthouse. 


Other members of the production team for the film include cinematographer Jarin Blaschke (The Witch, The Lighthouse) and art director Hauke Richter (Game of Thrones). 

Sadly, production in Northern Ireland has been placed on pause. 

As productions across Ireland and the United Kingdom (including Northern Ireland) have been placed on hiatus during the coronavirus pandemic it remains to be seen if they’ll be able to complete the film as planned. A week ago, a report from BelfastTelegraph stated that they had to abandon production on Northern Ireland’s north coast because of coronavirus fears. 

When filming will resume is unknown. 

Here’s a rundown of the cast of The Northman. 

  • Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants, The Witch, Last Night In Soho) 
  • Nicole Kidman (The Others, Destroyer, Bombshell, Big Little Lies, Stoker)
  • Alexander Skarsgard (Generation Kill, The Stand, The Little Drummer Girl)
  • Bill Skarsgard (Atomic Blonde, Castle Rock, IT, IT: Chapter Two)
  • Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse, Nightmare Alley, John Wick)
  • Claes Bang (Dracula, The Girl In The Spider’s Web, The Affair)
