Bill Skarsgard No Longer Attached To Star in 'The Northman' From Robert Eggers

Bill Skarsgard has had to drop out of his forthcoming film, The Northman, which will be directed by Robert Eggers.

The news was announced during the 30-year-old actor’s recent interview with Collider.

“No, unfortunately. It’s been a scheduling nightmare during COVID,” Bill shared. “It is what it is. It’s a big shame. Eggers is one of the great filmmakers out there and working with my brother…I don’t want to talk about it, it’s going to make me burst into tears.”

Bill was set to star with older brother Alexander, who he first starred with in 2000′s White Water Fury.

The Northman is set to be a Viking-era revenge tale set in Iceland at the turn of the 10th century, and also stars Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, and Anya Taylor-Joy.
