After that, she’ll reunite with Queen’s Gambit writer-director Scott Frank for the thriller Laughter in the Dark and Eggers again in a reworking of the vampire classic Nosferatu, the latest collaboration in a partnership that began with her first “real film,” the unnerving 2016 horror movie The Witch.
