It's his first major film appearance in 20 years...

Björk will play The Slav Witch in Robert Eggers' Viking drama The Northman.

The film is gradually being pieced together, with director Robert Eggers - The Witch, The Lighthouse - turning his attention to the Vikings.

The sweeping, and no doubt bloody, historical epic has already grabbed such stars as Willem Dafoe and Anya Taylor-Joy, with Alexander Skarsgård and Nicole Kidman joining the cast.

In an intriguing move Björk has joined the film, set to play a character called The Slav Witch.

The Icelandic artist has a rich acting pedigree, but she hasn't appeared in a major film production since 2000's Dancer In The Dark.

No word yet on a release date.
