The iconic singer won the Best Actress Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival

Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk is returning to big screen in Robert Eggers’ third feature film The Northman. According to recent reports, filming has already begun in Ireland.

The iconic singer won the Best Actress Award at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival for her debut acting role in Lars Bon Trier’s Dancer in the Dark.

She has joined the cast of The Lighthouse and The Witch director’s 10th century Viking epic, which marks her return to film after a 20-year hiatus.

Björk is all set to play a ‘Slav witch.’ If this is not exciting enough, her real-life daughter Ísadóra Barney will reportedly also make an appearance in The Northman.

Co-written by Eggers and Icelandic novelist Sjón Sigurdsson, the film will star Alexander Skarsgård in the lead role as a Nordic prince, seeking revenge for his father’s murder. The star-studded cast also includes Nicole Kidman, Bill Skarsgård, Willem Dafoe and Anya Taylor-Joy.

Both Willem Dafoe and Anya Taylor-Joy have previously worked with Eggers in The Lighthouse and The Witch.

Production of The Northman faced a few setbacks earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, a small crew has now resumed work and a few recent photos have revealed the film’s set, which includes the crew constructing several villages in Ireland.

The Northman’s release date has not been decided yet.
