The director behind horror companion films The Witch and The Lighthouse, Robert Eggers, has recruited Björk to be cast in his upcoming film The Northman. It’s been some time since the Icelandic singer-songwriter-producer starred in a feature film. Her last role was 2000’s Dancer In the Dark. Pics of the cast were released Monday via Instagram.

According to the images, Alexander Skarsgård will be cast as Viking prince Amleth who seeks revenge for his father’s murder. Willem Dafoe, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Nicole Kidman round out the utterly notable cast. Björk’s daughter Ísadóra Bjarkardóttir Barney is set to make appearances as well.

Set up by New Regency, The Northman was written by Eggers and Icelandic screenwriter Sjón. This will be the largest production of its kind that Eggers has taken on. Eggers said to IndieWire, “The scale is so huge and there are so many more locations and things that I couldn’t do everything or know every prop myself. That’s been a challenge with the new movie.”
