'The Witch' filmmaker, Robert Eggers, will direct.

Robert Pattinson will join Willem Dafoe in fantasy horror film The Lighthouse from writer-director Robert Eggers.

The Lighthouse, which is scheduled to go before cameras this spring, is set in the world of old sea-faring myths, taking place in Nova Scotia in the early 20th century and centering on an aging lighthouse keeper (Dafoe).

The project hails from A24, which recently worked with Pattinson on Good Time and Dafoe on The Florida Project. The company also distributed Eggers' debut, The Witch.

Rodrigo Teixeira and Lourenço Sant' Anna will produce via their Brazil-based RT Features, after having developed the project with Eggers. Parts & Labor's Jay Van Hoy and Youree Henley will also produce. New Regency, which is currently working with RT Features on sc-fi thriller Ad Astra, will co-finance.

Pattinson recently debuted his comedic Western Damsel at the Sundance Film Festival and is set for the Netflix feature The King, starring opposite Timothee Chalamet.
