"The VVitch" Director Robert Eggers’ ‘The Lighthouse’ Will Be Shot In Black and White


Robert Eggers is prepping for his next project and I'm glad to report that he'll be staying in the horror genre with "The Lighthouse." Little is known about this follow-up to "The Witch," but its editor has said that it's being shot in black and white. 
Louise Ford (“Don’t Breathe” and “Thoroughbreds”) stated in an interview:
“It’s set in 1890, and we’re shooting on 35mm black and white stock, virtually unheard of nowadays,” she says. “Most black and white movies are shot in colour, and then converted to black and white in post. The dailies look beautiful; it’s very exciting.” Ford’s most recent film, Paul Dano’s “Wildlife,” premiered at Sundance earlier this year and is currently at Cannes.
Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe will star in the film which has been described as “a fantasy horror story set in the world of old sea-faring myths.”
